It’s time for the 2nd edition of Startup Weekend Ghent, starting on Friday, December 5th. Just like last year, this event will be held in the iMinds offices and is sure to spark creativity in all participants.


Whether you have an idea or want to contribute in design, development, marketing or business … this is the moment where you build an amazing startup, all over the course of one weekend.

The weekend goes as follows: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!

We have an amazing set of coaches and jury members this year. Most of them entrepreneurs themselves and very capable to advise you on topics like business development, marketing, financing and ‘why you should just go for it!’.
