The fourth edition of Startup Weekend Copenhagen is kicking off the 18th of this month, and is bringing along with it 54 hours of non-stop action, access to mentors, and Saturday night entertainment featuring Christmas Beer from Andrik Microbrewery. We've got a discount code for the ticket, and they have some great prizes for the first place winner:
- 10 000kr cash from Dansk Industri (~1.300€)
- 3 months free rent of an office at 5te ITU
- 3 hours free consulting from KPMG, and
- A free springboard meeting from Connect Denmark.
You may remember the last Copenhagen Startup Weekend was all about mobile, but this year they're open to anything.
Startup Weekends are a global network of events. During the weekend, technical people, marketers, and business developers come together to pitch their ideas, build a team, and try to create a viable startup in 52 hours. They claim on average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.
And afterwards, over 36% of Startup Weekend startups are still going strong after 3 months. Roughly 80% of participants plan on continuing working with their team or startup after the weekend.
