Startup Weekend Monterey Bay

January 26, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - January 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Do you have an idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with? 

Startup Weekend Monterey Bay (SWMB) is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend. At SWMB, you’ll be immersed in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen. Aspiring entrepreneurs will work together to build startups in one chaotic weekend. The ultimate hands-on learning experience, SWMB allows innovators from all disciplines team up for an intensive experience in building businesses.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
