Startup Weekends are 54-hour events in Portland, Eugene, and at PSU, where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch companies.
Startup Weekends are all about learning through the act of creating. Don’t just listen to theory, build your own strategy and test it as you go.
Build your network
This isn’t just a happy-hour. Startup Weekend attracts your community’s best makers and do-ers. By spending a weekend working to build scalable companies that solve real-world problems, you will build long-lasting relationships and possibly walk away with a job or even an investor.
We all know it’s not just about the idea – it’s about the team. Startup Weekend is hands down the best way to find someone you can actually launch a startup with.
Learn a new skill
Step outside of your comfort zone. With a whole weekend dedicated to letting your creative juices flow, Startup Weekends are perfect opportunities to try something different.
Actually launch a business
Over 36% of Startup Weekend startups are still going strong after 3 months. Roughly 80% of participants plan on continuing working with their team or startup after the weekend.
