About Techstars Startup Weekend

The hardest part of starting up is starting out. At Techstars Startup Weekend GMU, you'll be immersed in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen.

Startup Weekend takes place over 54 hours, where attendees share ideas, form teams, and launch startups. This event provides a place for innovators and budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors, and momentum for their ideas.

Participants have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with presentations and demos in front of an audience of judges and potential investors.

Over the weekend you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. So, what are you waiting for? Join us!

  • Day 1: Meet, Pitch & Team Up
  • Day 2: Learn & Work
  • Day 3: Present & Celebrate

Signup today to take advantage of the Early Registration Fee of $30, a savings of $75! The registration fee includes 7-catered meals and snacks, swag, and free parking.

Note: Students only.
