Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship | Hochschule München

Startup Weekend is a three-day event, where you can implement your business ideas in a highly motivated and creative environment. Business ideas are pitched on Friday night and teams are then created with the top 15 most voted ideas. Throughout the weekend, coaches from different disciplines help you on your business idea and final pitch, whether it is a prototype, functioning app or a business plan. On Sunday evening, the final pitches are presented in front of a jury, where you will be qualified for one of the prizes. This weekend is all about teamwork, action, energy, and innovation. So… enough talk! Shake is up the way you like it and register now!
