Startup Weekend Cape Cod will take place on March 8, 9, 10 at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. The non-profit organization is headquartered out of Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend events can be found in cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to Canada to Brazil, Startup Weekend brings people together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies. We are bringing Startup Weekend to Cape Cod because we know that our community can only benefit from such an event.
Startup Weekends are designed to help new or aspiring entrepreneurs learn what it means to launch their own ventures. About half of the participants have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds; all of them can benefit from getting feedback from a coach with years of experience.
