Three days that will give you the opportunity to validate your ideas and launch your new ventures, in order to change the World
Esch-Sur-Alzette, Luxembourg, November 5, 2018 – Startup Weekend Luxembourg is celebrating its 10th anniversary edition from 7-9th December 2018 at Technoport (Esch-sur-Alzette, Belval). You have an idea that you would like to validate? You want to solve a specific problem but you are not sure how to go to execute your idea? You are alone and would like to find other team members? You need specific competencies and don’t know where to find them?
“Startup Weekend is a unique experience to validate over 54 hours a business idea with the support of a great community of business coaches and mentors. We are very happy to see that after the first edition back in November 2012 we were able to make this event a recurring and successful yearly appointment for passionate people who want to, not only, change the world in some cases but potentially also change their professional career” says Diego De Biasio, co-organizer.
Sylvain Chery, co-organizer, adds: “I believe Startup Weekend Luxembourg has become a key component of the local startup ecosystem. It’s a great place to start your entrepreneur’s journey because it offers a safe environment for testing a business idea over a weekend, and participants don’t have to quit their job to experiment. It is also a great opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills and build a network.”
The nine last editions of Startup Weekend Luxembourg have gathered more than 700 participants (from 12 countries), supported by more than 100 coaches/judges from all industries and more than 27 pitches have been awarded, from 90 selected projects.
If you want to make a difference, if you have an idea and want to make it happen over just a weekend, or if you just want to have the best weekend ever by working with game changers, join the 10th edition of the Startup Weekend Luxembourg and be part of something unique.
This is not your usual weekend!
Startup Weekend Luxembourg is a non-for-profit event organized by a team of volunteers to promote entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation in the local ecosystem.
Early-bird registration costs 45€ and closes on November 11th.
