What is Startup Weekend Bali?


Organized by Hubud, powered by Techstars, Startup Weekend Bali is part of the global movement of Startup Weekends – a weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. With over 1,600 events in over 700 cities and 120 countries, Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals and teams to found successful startups.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday, all of the teams will focus on their customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening, the teams will demonstrate their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

For this edition, more than 15,000 entrepreneurs will come together for 200 events held during Global Entrepreneurship Week to celebrate entrepreneurship across the globe. The winners of Global Startup Weekend will be featured globally, to help them gain exposure and build momentum for their startup.

All attendees will also be provided with high-quality resources and content exclusive to this event.

“Startup Weekend Bali practically gave me everything I need to know to finally launch my startup. I had the idea for 1 year at that time and confused where and how to start. Startup Weekend Bali connected me with very helpful mentors to get me started!”

“Every aspect was fantastic - the warm Welcome from all the staff, the organisation, decoration, food, coaching, photos, videos, and very generous prizes. I’m so glad I decided to attend! I got so much from the event that I’ve recommended friends to join Startup Weekend Bali whenever it’s held.”

Who is mentoring?

Throughout the weekend you will be supported by Mentors (sometimes referred to as Coaches) who are often described by attendees as one of the most valuable features of the weekend! The one-on-one advice given to teams can be invaluable and a key factor in their growth as a startup. Mentors themselves enjoy working with teams because it’s a chance to share their knowledge and help other aspiring entrepreneurs. Startup Weekend Bali mentors will be announced shortly.
