Ever wondered what it takes to create a hardware startup?
The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?
Get ready for the FIRST EVER full-sized Startup Weekend Maker Edition! From June 28th-30th, Makerhaus will be hosting this new trend in venture creation—a 54-hour event where makers of all kinds, as well as developers, designers, and startup enthusiasts will come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups. Startup Weekend Maker Edition is a special event that will combine the typical web-based Startup Weekend format with the rapid prototyping and product development capabilities made possible by technologies such as 3D printing, laser-cutting and microcontrollers.
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups!
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees are encouraged to bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams design and develop business plans while constantly streamlining their startup vision. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes, listen to judges’ feedback and in some cities, win prizes.
Startup Weekends are specifically designed for entrepreneurs interested in receiving feedback on an idea, looking for a co-founder, or who want to learn a new skill. We also welcome anyone looking to test the entrepreneurial waters. Startup Weekends are risk-free environments where everyone is expected to roll up their sleeves and dive into the exhilarating world of startups.
