Startup WeekendMany great companies started as a weekend project and we want you to be next! If you are passionate about building great things and are up for a fun intense weekend then YallaStartup Weekend is for you.

StartupWeekend is a famous event that has taken place in 54 cities in the US and around the world and we are bringing it to Beirut on November 12,13 and 14 at Berytech. The weekend is hands-on event that encourages out of the box creative thinking and startup creation. The idea is very simple, you join us on the first day of the weekend with a group of highly motivated developers, product, marketing, graphic and business guys and girls together, you team up, decide on an idea, code and deliver a prototype on Sunday. During the weekend, VCs and experts will be spending walking around the venue and giving some short talks in the hope of scouting the next big thing! Winning teams will receive prizes and recognition on YallaStartup and our press partners.

A number of teams from StartupWeekend in the US actually went on to become successful startups and raise funding. The event is open to everyone and if you are in Jordan or Syria we are organizing sponsored bus rides in an exciting and fun “Geeks on a Bus” setup. We are also exploring with the help of our generous sponsors to help assist with your stay, but do feel free to bring your sleeping bags, Berytech is generously allowing participants to crash at the venue.
