Groningen has a lot of people who want to further the region from an eco- and not an ego perspective.
Over the last few years we have seen people connect and become friends. It is is great when meaningful friendships arise between entrepreneurial people. It creates space to cooperate and build businesses together. Friends know each others talents and pitfalls and understand what they can do for each other.
It's all about having a good time
Startup Weekend is all about having a good time! Participating is a mindblowing and exciting experience. Nevertheless; the excitement is not so great that you have to worry about your skill level, the quality of your ideas, or that you are becoming owner of a business in only a weekend that will require your attention. None of that.
Startup Weekend provides a safe space for everyone who wish to explore new business-models, ideas, technological applications without being challenged prematurely.
You don't have to be an aspiring entrepreneur
You don’t have to be an aspiring entrepreneur to be enterprising. Adopting an entrepreneurial mindset and taking initiative within your studies or the company you are working for is just as valuable.
It might seem like you need a giant leap of faith to be enterprising. Is the time right? Is the idea good enough? Can I do it? We love to show you how ideas and opportunities can evolve by just getting started
