Cities become smarter with Startup Weekend!
Passionate about creating products and services that aim to make our cities smarter?
Join us for the next Startup Weekend Tirana focused on making our citiy better for living. The theme Smart Cities is about developing products and services that make our cities better places to live. There is particular interest in building out new sharing economies, urban analytics, efficient and innovative transport/energy/utilities solutions, and smarter home or work spaces.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
Build your network: Startup Weekend attracts the 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.
Actually launch a business: Over 36% of Startup Weekends are still going strong after 3 months. Roughly 80% of participants plan on continuing working with their team or startup after the weekend.
Get face time with thought leaders: Get one-on-one time with the movers and shakers in your community. Local tech and startup leaders participate in Startup Weekends as coaches and judges.
Join a global community: Startup Weekend alumni span across several continents and scores of cities.
Learn: Startup Weekends are all about learning through the art of creating. Build your own strategy and test it as you go.
