Coaching @ Startup Weekend Brussels 2013
Last weekend, I had the pleasure to be invited to work as a coach during the Startup Weekend Brussels 2013. I knew the concept of this event, one friend of mine won in 2011 🙂
If you don’t know what that is, here’s some Intel.
What’s a Startup Weekend ?
Startup Weekend is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1000 past events in 470 cities around the world. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, join 100.000 starters and register to a Startup Weekend event.
Who it is for ?
Students, young starters, confirmed entrepreneurs, with a project or not! A large panel of profiles are welcome : developer, designer, architects, financial, commercial, marketing, legal, …
Whatever your profile is, if you are creative, ambitious and motivated, if you have a startup mindset, or if you have always dreamed to start your business, Startup Weekend is the place to be!
What’s happening during this event ?
On Friday evening, participants present their fresh new ideas. Best ideas are selected and teams are formed to start their projects. Over the activities during the weekend, participants get valuable advices, inspiration, coaching, and new contacts. The goal is to develop a “working prototype” and a “business model” to present on Sunday evening to a jury of experts. Best projects are then awarded and the weekend ends celebrating participants.
Startup Weekend is an opportunity to show your talents, your skills, and to share ideas. It is also an excellent way to collaborate with professionals from different horizons and to meet real entrepreneurs, journalists and investors.
Congratulations to the winners. One of them is Marc, an active member of the Agile Belgium Community 🙂
