November is a busy time for the Startup Weekend community around the world! For the past 5 years we’ve seen startup teams from over 65 countries battle it out for top spots and their communities come together to support them in Global Startup Battle. This year, we’re welcoming a different type of celebration – Global Startup Weekend!

As our community around the world continues to grow and evolve, we’ve switched up our annual initiative to provide even more value to organizers, attendees, and communities. During Global Startup Weekend, 15k entrepreneurs will come together for events in over 50 countries during November 11-13 & 18-20! We’re excited to provide exclusive resources for attendees to help prep for success at Startup Weekend and make connections to mentors and other startup teams. To help continue your growth, the winning team of each event will gain access to helpful perks for building your startup.

If you haven’t been to a Startup Weekend yet, this is the time to do so! We’ve got the virtual workshops to get you started and Startup Weekends to bring your company to life. Now’s your chance to build that idea you’ve been thinking of! Find a Global Startup Weekend event near you!
