Techstars Startup Weekend Boston Women's Edition


This is a call for you to get your idea off the ground surrounded by like-minded women and allies!


Techstars Global Startup Weekend Women's Edition is your chance to collaborate and get involved with a group of motivated individuals who are hell-bent on disrupting their industry of choice. The event is aimed at female participants, however, men are welcome to participate!


What’s different about this event?
Techstar Global Startup Weekend is designed to engage more entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary resources for long-term success. The weekend will be focused on empowering more women within our community to lend their voice to innovation. It will be one of over 50 Startup Weekends happening around the globe, and the winning team will qualify to attend our global (in-person) demo day with other #globalswwomen winning teams. 


The innovation ecosystem has never been more exciting than it is right now.


It is our time to RUN the world!
We would like to involve more women in the startup world. We have seen the barriers faced by women in tech. We would like to continue our efforts in cultivating a wholly inclusive community. Women still don't fill enough important roles in tech. Women hold under a quarter (24%) of senior roles across the world and 5.2% of CEO positions at S&P 500 Companies. Closing the wage gap for women would add $28 trillion to global GDP. As tech lovers, women and entrepreneurs, it is our responsibility to grow female representation, in Boston and around the world!


How it works
Beginning with Friday night, women pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas followed by a 54-hour of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders providing another opportunity for critical feedback before a final winning team is chosen.
