For the first time in Switzerland in a Startup Weekend, participants will have a FabLab (fabrication laboratory) at their disposal!
What is a FabLab? It is a small-scale workshop offering digital fabrication. Participants of Startup Weekend Biel/Bienne will be able to convert their startup idea and produce a single piece of their startup prototype: be it with a 3D printer (plastics), 3D scanner or even with a laser cutter.
Specialised staff supports you during the weekend with all its know-how.
Startup Weekend Biel/Bienne will take place at Swiss Innovation Park Biel/Bienne (previously named INNOCAMPUS), located 5 min away by foot from train station.
We have the chance to have one hostel 100m away, Hotel Continental Biel/Bienne, which has very correct prices.
And we also have a youth hostel situated 300m away, which is a great and cheaper alternative: LagoLodge (which has, moreover, also a brewery alongside – probably a great place to continue “working” during the night!).
