Hi all,

while working hard on the upcoming Startup Weekend Zilina #3, we wanted to share some bits of what we think is really exciting:

  • The event will take place – and essentially the event will be unofficial opening party of – brand new shiny office and co-working centre Banka Zilina, we’ll be there first!
  • Great names are coming; starting our facilitator – Vidar Andersen, with mentors as well as coaches (stay tuned as we will announce them one by one here and on our Facebook channel)
  • There will be more volunteers taking care about our precious 54 hours, so all should be much smoother
  • We are feverishly chasing sponsors to get the best prices for our winning teams and we might have some free beer as well (hopefully it works out, keep fingers crossed)

To put all of you into a Startup Weekend mood, we’ll host a Warm Up party as well, on the 28th of October at Stanicka Zariecie. We are preparing exciting surprise as a part of it, will share the details soon, so come, bring your friends and spread the word about it.


WE WANT YOU! Do not forget to book the date 7-9.11.2014. Another fantastic Startup Weekend is just around the corner ;).


Three years in a row – that is already a something. A lot of thanks goes out to those who help. Without huge effort of volunteers and partners SWZA would not be possible. Attend and help to fuel the change in Zilina!
