Got a crazy idea for a start-up business, but need to find a team to help pull it off? That’s where Startup Weekend comes in.

Startup Weekend is a global phenomenon backed by the world famous Kaufmann Institute for Entrepreneurship. The idea is to get developers, designers and business heads in the same venue and creating new ventures over the space of a weekend. The event begins on Friday evening when budding entrepreneurs give a two minute pitch from the floor. The most popular or intriguing projects go forward and then teams form to get the ball rolling.

Startup Weekend Wellington organiser and Webfund Chairman Dave Moskovitz says that Startup Weekend is not just about building a new application and selling it. It’s a great opportunity to grow your entrepreneurial networks and find friends and mentors with complementary skill sets. There will also be great food and coffee available throughout the event, included in the ticket price plus prizes, he said.

The event will be held at BizDojo kicking off on the evening of Friday 4th November.
