Startup Weekend Karachi 2016
54-hour event, Startup Weekend generally takes place in the last week of a particular month for 3 days. During the three day period, budding entrepreneurs experience a roller coaster ride with highs, lows, pressure and fun that makes a startup life interesting. In addition, they will also meet high profile company heads, mentors, seasoned professionals, investors, and sponsors which will bring their input to polish your idea.
The event is also open for anyone and everyone who doesn’t even have an idea in their kitty. One can still come and experience the ride, listen to the ideas and find out what’s in there for him/her. Furthermore, you can also become a team member and work as a developer, designer, or marketer. The concept behind the exercise is to give you the real feel of creating something from scratch besides learning the entrepreneurial spirit.
During the first day, the participants will meet new people; choose the project they will be working on and finally team up. The first day will be followed by a theme dinner. The second day will be dedicated to learning and making the product with the help of mentors and coaches. This day will end with a social night. The final day is assigned to presenting your business idea and product in just five minutes in front of a panel of judges. The exercise will be followed by a theme dinner as well.
The partners for the event are: .CO, Bookitnow.pk, Eventbrite, FM 91, Google for Entrepreneurs, Jang Group, Pizza Hut, Starlinks and Techstars. The management feels that it will be the biggest Startup Weekend ever with so many big brands as partners.
