Techstars Startup Weekend events allow people of all ages to participate in the entrepreneurial process, using an innovative method to go from an idea to a business in 54 hours; from zero to hero! This special edition in São Paulo is focused on empowering young women ages 14 to 17 to engage with entrepreneurship. 75% of spaces will be reserved for young women, while the remaining 25% are available to others.
The event begins on Friday evening and ends of Sunday when groups present their startups to a panel of judges made up of investors, representatives of major companies, startup accelerators, etc. Participants' ideas can even be discovered and supported by these leaders in the entrepreneurial ecosystem of São Paulo!
