Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs, with over 400 events held in 100 countries in 2011.
This exceptional event will be a YOUTH event for high school students with reasonable proficiency in English. Youth Startup Weekend Ankara attracts the best and brightest "do-ers" in the community and beyond.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic 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.
Youth Startup Weekend will be an abbreviated version with teams working for half the time and focusing on business plans or social campaigns, designing/planning an actual product or social campaign, marketing, and learning how to manage a team.
The weekend will culminate with presentations in front of figures from the business, technology and entrepreneurship fields.
