Global Women Techstars Startup Weekend Kathmandu is an all-women Startup Weekend where ideators, designers, developers, marketers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form team, and launch startups. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. Startup Weekends are the perfect environment where you validated your ideas and take the first step towards launching your own startup.
If you are interested in entrepreneurship the answer is most likely yes. Techstars Startup Weekend attendee backgrounds are roughly 50% technical (developers, coders, designers) and 50% business (marketing, finance, law). Whether you are a serial entrepreneur or new to the startup scene, if you motivated to build a product or startup and open to new ideas you’ll fit right in.
Apart from Organizers, selected Coaches, Speakers, and press, everyone who attends the event is expected to participate all three days. This is important not only to preserve the ‘vibe’ of the weekend (“no talk, all action”) but also to minimize distractions/disruptions for working teams. However, at most Techstars Startup Weekends a “Sunday Presentations Only” registration option is available for those wishing to only view the teams’ final presentations. (Please check the registration page of your city’s website for availability.)
Every Techstars Startup Weekend event has a corresponding website (typically with the URL “[city].up.co”) with a registration page. Please see our events page at startupweekend.org/events for a complete list of upcoming events. If registration is not open, ticketing has either not yet opened or is already sold out.
Please note the different ticket types: if Business tickets are sold out and you fall into the Business category, you’ll have to wait for the next event (which won’t be far off!). This is an important part of our efforts to maintain a balance between attendees’ backgrou
In most cases you cannot pay at the door of the event. Organizers need to order the food and supplies in advance to meet the needs of the weekend. If you live in a city where online payment is extremely difficult, there may be an exception. If you are physically unable to pay online, reach out to the local organizers to arrange payment.
Everyone who attends the event as an attendee is expected to participate on a team. This is important not only to preserve the mission of Techstars Startup Weekend (teamwork!) but also to minimize distractions/disruptions for all working teams.
