What is Startup Weekend Bali?

Organized by Hubud Startup Weekend Bali is part of the global movement of Startup Weekends – weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable powered by Techstars. With over 1.600 events in over 700 cities and 120 countries, Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals and teams to found successful startups.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

“Startup Weekend Bali practically gave me everything I need to know to finally launch my startup. I had the idea for 1 year at that time and confused where and how to start. Startup Weekend Bali connected me with very helpful mentors to get me started!”
