About

You have a business idea? Come to Startup Weekend Lisbon and let us help you bring into life.

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. It is a place for designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts to come together and share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups!

All Startup Weekend events follow the same model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

It is not only us that believe Startup Weekend is amazing. Here is what some of the people who experienced the event have to say about it:

“People have so many preconceived ideas about building a business. They should come and see how it’s actually done – 54 hours, better than an MBA, you learn so much and you meet so many interesting people and you actually can start a company. Definitely recommended!”  – Winner of Startup Weekend Vancouver 2011

“I love the passion and the energy. Literally, lives get changed at Startup Weekend.” – participant in the Startup Weekend Silicon Valley 2012
