For all event details, visit helsinki.up.co/events/5308 Thanks!   What is Startup Weekend? Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where developers, designers, and other startup enthusiasts from non-technical fields come together to form teams, validate their ideas, build new products and launch startups. Teams go from an idea scrawled on a napkin to a working prototype and maybe even paying customers, all within a single weekend. This will be the 4th edition of Startup Weekend in Helsinki.  Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1500 past events in 726 cities around the world with over 13k startups created with the help of over 123k entrepreneurs.    How does it work? Startup Weekend is an event designed to provide superior experimental education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night, participants get 60 seconds to pitch their ideas to the crowd and try to recruit the best talent in the room. Continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, the Startup Weekend culminates in Sunday night demos and presentations, where teams present their minimum viable product (MVP) to a panel of expert judges, fellow participants and other guests. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs and mentors. The weekend is centred around action, innovation, and education.    What do you get out of it? – You will get a taste of what it's like in the startup world, and learn first hand about every step of building a startup (at the very least, it'll be a memorable weekend away from your usual daily routine).   – You might find your perfect co-founder soulmate with whom you'll go on to launch a multi-million dollar startup, be it this weekend or down the road. – We take care of you during the weekend and all you need to bring is your laptop:  Catered food – 7 meals total Unlimited coffee Startup Weekend Helsinki t-shirt Fantastic working space Discounts for some of the best startup tools Access to some of the area's best startup mentors – Plus, if your team wins, you will get heaps of additional resources and mentorship to help you get your startup off the ground. There are also plenty of investors in the crowd, so if your pitches were something special, you might even get funding (it happens!).   How much do you have to pay? Thanks to our amazing sponsors (do check them out here) you'll only have to pay 50€ for your ticket. Without the help of our sponsors this ticket would be around 99€. All participants get heaps of exclusive goodies including free domain names, web services and more. Not to mention free coaching and guidance from some of the best mentors around. All in all, its probably the best 50€ you'll ever spend. Early bird tickets will run out soon, so get one FAST!    Join us, and get ready for the ride of your life. #SWHelsinki   If you want to keep updated with information about the next SWHelsinki be sure to like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter!   Refund Policy: No refunds will be granted within 7 days of the event if food and drink have already been ordered.
