Share your ideas, join a team, iron out your business model, and build away! Techstars Startup Weekend is a unique event that creates a perfect environment for smart and active learners. In just 54 hours, 50 developers, designers, and business experts will come together to create startups from scratch and, guided by a pool of experts & mentors, learn about entrepreneurship in a hands-on and meaningful way.
Startup Weekend Amsterdam Future Cities is here to empower the community of (aspiring) entrepreneurs who are passionate about making a positive impact in the Amsterdam metropolitan area.
