Startup Weekend Islamabad

After successful Startup Weekends at Peshawar and Lahore, the capital city Islamabad is all set for the event. We saw a huge participation of students and professionals in both of the recent events in Peshawar and Lahore, and a lot of great products came to light in just 54 hours.

To speak about the next big happening event in Pakistan, it is an undeniable fact that Islamabad has a huge potential. The city has some of the best universities of the country and if the students come together to spend their weekend on something productive like execution of their ideas – we believe, there is no reason we can’t have a success story from there.

In case you are new to Startup Weekends and wondering what exactly is the event about?

Startup weekend is a 54 hour event where developers, business analyst, product managers, marketers, designers and other technical or non-technical people gather to execute their ideas, build and promote their product and get prominence in the market. Since the event always happens on a weekend hence, it is named as Startup weekend.

Startup Weekends are arranged to gather all the entrepreneurs and people at a single platform who have excelled in their respective fields. This lessens the cost of consultancy and enriches the skills of young starters in a very short period. Young entrepreneurs work under the supervision of talented people who acts as their mentors and coaches

Exciting Proceedings at the event 

Event like this is one of those memorable times that leave footprints on the minds for longer period. Teams present their ideas, rub elbows with their mentors and get feedback in return to produce a viable product. A single weekend gives a chance for participants to convert loosely coupled ideas into strategically transformed startups.

In short, whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to steer his idea well.

Startup Weekend Islamabad is a great platform for all the budding entrepreneurs who are planning to start something of their own, if not a complete product but a prototype development in a weekend can turn out to be very beneficial. You wouldn’t find this much number of mentors and coaches anywhere, plus the good thing is they have also booked their weekend to help you polish your idea. So what are you waiting for?
