Recap: Startup Weekend Brussels

Recap: Startup Weekend Brussels

Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together Brussels designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. It happened at transforma bxl on 27/02 – 01/03 and this time the theme was Ageing Population.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
