Startup Weekend Volos 2016
Startup Weekend is a global network of events following a same basic model. Startup Weekend Volos is taking place for the fourth time in 2016.
In Startup Weekends anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with opportunity for critical feedback.
Startup Weekend Volos is taking place on Friday, April 8th until Sunday, April 11th and it will gather a great line-up of mentors and judges.
