5:30 pm - Startup Weekend Singapore Mega

The biggest, the boldest and the most happening Startup Weekend is here.
Startup Weekend Mega 2017 – Where Innovation Begins!

On the weekend of 29 September – 1 October 2017, over 300 passionate startup enthusiasts will be gathered at NUS University Town to hack out their next company. They are participants of Startup Weekend, a global movement of entrepreneurs who are crazy about starting a technology-based business and forging bonds that will last a lifetime.

In just 54 hours, participants will form teams, brainstorm, design a product, validate their business idea and pitch in front of experienced judges on Sunday evening. Throughout the weekend, there will be highs and lows, frustrations and moments of triumph, but some people will meet their co-founder at the event, and some teams will even move on to start a company after the event. Win or lose, we are certain that new lessons will be learned, ideas will be tested, limits will be pushed and lives will be changed forever.

To spice things up, we will be having a few special activities: Pizza & Beer Party on Friday night to break the ice and form your teams! On Sat, we will be inviting special mentors and guests down to interact with the teams! In the true spirit of Startup Weekend, we will be bringing in local startups, budding founders and uber cool companies to sponsor, showcase and network with you!

Startup Weekend has a strong brand in Singapore. Globally, it has touched more than 1140 cities and its alumni consists of more than 480,000 entrepreneurs. Notable success stories coming out of Startup Weekend include Carousell, which started off as SnapSell at Startup Weekend 2012 and has since raised nearly SGD $50 million in Series B funding led by Rakuten Ventures in August 2016.

To be clear, Startup Weekend is for everyone, whether you are working corporate, building your own startup, having a career as a professional clown, a mechanic, a designer, coder or student, everyone can contribute in their own way. Startup Weekend is designed to embrace diversity, creating a conducive environment for anyone to turn their concepts into companies! So give it a go, you’ll never know what magic can happen over a weekend!

Finally, there are 3 categories of tickets and 2 different groups: Group A and Group B for a total of up to 300 participants.

So you can buy tickets in the following:

  1. Hustler A or Hustler B
  2. Designer A or Designer B
  3. Developer A or Developer B

Naturally, participants in the same group will be able to form teams within the group. Participants from Group A will NOT be able to form teams with Group B and vice versa.

Tip: there’s no difference between Group A and B. Please buy tickets in the same group if you want to be with your friends!
