About Startup Weekend Cluj
The Startup Weekend concept appeared in America in 2007. What was initially a group of people who shared their experience and helped each other evolved over time into a global community of entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs. Hundreds of cities in 135+ countries have borrowed this idea for tens of thousands of people to start their business at a Startup Weekend event.

The eighth edition of Startup Weekend Cluj will take place on March 15-17, 2019, at TELENAV Romania, Bd 21 December 1918, Cluj-Napoca, The Office Building.
