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.

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

Dave Gowenlock

Founder of Bali Fresh Box

“Startup Weekends are especially exciting for Bali, because this amazing island is a focus point for entrepreneurs and technical whizz kids from all over the world.”
