Organizing is hard work, but the results are worth the endeavor. If you meet the following criteria you are ready to organize a Startup Weekend.


  1. All Startup Weekend Organizers must have previously attended a Startup Weekend event. This is important for a number of reasons, but the bottom line is there is simply no way to fully understand what Startup Weekend is all about without experiencing it firsthand. We strongly recommend you not only attend to observe, but actually participate on a team. We’re fortunate enough to have events on every Continent, so there should be an upcoming event near you
  2. While we’re not a rule-oriented Organization, in order to maintain a high level of quality, consistency and to ensure that every event provides maximum value to its participants, there are some basic rules and requirements we require all Organizers and Events to abide by. Before submitting an application, you must carefully read these Rules.
  3. When you’re ready, fill out the Event Application. Please answer each field to the best of your ability, as your answers will in large part determine whether or not your Application is accepted. Once completed, your Regional Manager will be in touch.
