Techstars Startup Weekend Sustainability Tampere
54 hours. Startup ideas with a positive impact on the planet.
Passionate about design, innovation, and sustainable development? Got an idea you want to pursue or a problem you want to solve but are not sure where to start? Do you have the desire to make an impact? Techstars Startup Weekend Sustainability is the right place to create a prototype for your idea, validate your business idea, find a team, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs.
Got a weekend to let us inspire you?
The perfect opportunity to pitch an idea, gather a team, and turn that idea into a startup is given by Sustainability Startup Weekend. The idea can be sustainability-focused, or simply a business that integrates sustainable practices in operations and strategy. The rest will be provided by us: the tools to get your idea produced in an incredibly short amount of time, test it with potential consumers, and pitch your startup in front of a panel of judges.
Don’t have a startup idea yet? We want you anyway - and we can bet that you will end up pitching something before the weekend ends!
What’s special about this event?
During the course of 54 hours, you’ll experience it all - the highs, the lows, the joys and pressure that make up life in a startup. While learning how to create a real company, you simultaneously meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors, all of whom are more than ready to help get you started. Whoever you are and whatever dreams and aspirations you have, come take part in a weekend that could change your life and the future of many.
Sustainability is the future of business. We are ensuring that the entire weekend will be a green event itself, in every element, such as branded t-shirts, stationary, food & waste disposal. We’re incorporating ethical production and sustainably sourced or recycled materials throughout the event.
Who is this weekend for?
Sustainability Startup Weekend is designed as an inclusive program and event that aims to bring all sorts of people together, including, but not limited to:
Aspiring & experienced entrepreneurs;
Designers of all types;
Non-technical talent (sales, business, finance, legal, etc.);
Lifelong learners and educators;
Students from universities and secondary schools;
Professionals looking to switch careers or build new skills.
What do you need to bring?
One thing is for certain - you’ll need to bring lots of energy! Throughout the weekend you will pitch your own idea and listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets.
The idea should be something you have not previously worked on. You’ll get mentoring, feedback, and are likely to pivot your approach entirely.
