Startup Weekend Returns in November


It’s been quiet on the Startup Weekend front, with the last Honolulu event held in February and a Maui event in May. But Hawaii will be back in the mix next month as part of the Global Startup Battle, taking place Nov. 14-16. The Honolulu event will take place at BoxJelly in Kakaako.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks.

The worldwide event is part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare… During 2012 alone, presidents and prime ministers from 20 countries supported Global Entrepreneurship Week while 93 ministers from 54 countries participated.

Early bird tickets are available for $75 until Oct. 31.
