Can you really build a viable Startup in a weekend?
Startups seem to be mystical creatures requiring regular funding, constant board supervision and ambiguous environments to thrive. The small minority of Startups that ever scale to maturity often drive their founders to temporary insanity in the process. Why should you bother? Because humans are natural problem solvers and solving problems you care about has an allure nothing else can match. The bigger the problem the more exciting solving it.

Join us to explore the problem solving power of cross-functional teams building the future in short bursts of time. Marc Lissade, lead organizer of multiple Startup Weekend events will walk us through the “idea accelerator” process and provide us with multiple examples of well known Startups hatched at one of these mad science experiments.

We will also cover the lack of diversity in Tech and Innovation Entrepreneurship, it’s implications and potential solutions.

Take this workshop to the next level by registering for Techstars Startup Weekend Fort Lauderdale | Latinx in Tech.
Startup Weekend is the only event where you can gather a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business model, receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, business professionals, developers etc. then pitch your new Startup to a judging panel of prominent startup experts all in one weekend.
