Choose your Role
Build your most important asset - your team mates
Laser-focused 24/7, you accomplish whatever you set out to do.

For you, there are no boundaries. You dream bigger than anyone else. And you are relentless in your pursuit. Risk-takers and go-getters by nature, failures don't bite you. Instead, they spur you on further.

You are opportunistic and a problem-solver; you know how to play your best cards. If you can pitch, market, formulate business models, or will do anything to keep the team going — hey, there's a hustler in you.

You are no stranger to visual hierarchies, visual cues and information foraging.

For you, the rainbow is more than its 8 colours - instead, you see them in hues, tints, shade and their 6 digit HEX-codes.

Magic is at your fingertips when you’re on visual editing softwares. You transform pitch decks or prototypes into a feast for the eyes. If you have a flare for visuals and speak the design language - hey, there’s a designer in you.
As long you’re concerned, bugs aren’t insects and a library isn’t where you go to borrow books. A master of translating the real-world into computer simulation, you create algorithms with no sweat.

You are a polyglot, familiar with various programming languages from the likes of Python to C++. Defined by an endless curiosity and an unrelenting drive, you fix problems with code.

If you find thrill in writing applications and building products - hey, there’s a developer in you.

Grab your gear, assemble your team and get ready to enter our Startup Weekend metaverse to network, build ideas and shape history, all in video game mode.
