Choose your Role
Build your most important asset - your team mates
Hustler
Designer
Developer
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What ideas can I work on?
You can work on any ideas under our current themes - Web3, DeFi, Metaverse, NFT and Gaming.
I don't have any experience, can I still join?
Definitely! You don’t have to be a seasoned entrepreneur to join Startup Weekend. You can join us either as a hustler, developer or designer and Most importantly, if you are excited about startups, entrepreneurship, meeting people, and having a good time, then Startup Weekend is definitely the place for you!
How big should each team be?
You need 4-6 members to form a team. Based on past experience, we highly recommend having at least one of each profile (hustler, developer and designer) to form a well-rounded team.
Is there any criteria for selection? Is my participation confirmed once I get my ticket?
There is no criteria for participating, once you sign up, you’re in! Our only request is that you come with an open mind for learning and lots of enthusiasm!
Can I join as an individual?
In the spirit of Startup Weekend, one of the goals for each participant is to get out of your comfort zone, and network and connect with these amazing people all around you. Each team needs to be between 4-6 people. But fret not, if you're joining alone, there will be plenty of chances for you to connect with others once you sign up, and we will guarantee you'll be able to find a team.
I have been working on my startup idea for the last 2 years, can I pitch it?
Startup Weekend is designed to be the most effective platform for growing new businesses from the ground up over the course of a weekend. A key facet of the weekend, and a central value for participants, is the spirit of complete collaboration, buy-in, and ownership. We’ve found that having existing businesses in the mix undermines this spirit, in addition to creating an unequal playing field alongside those ideas that are truly conceived at the grass-roots level.

TLDR - No, participants will not be allowed to pitch their existing ideas at Startup Weekend.
What do we get out of the event?
An amazing experience, startup education, global friends, mentorship, digital perks, fantastic prizes for winning teams, and most importantly, a lifetime of memories!

Keep a lookout on this page for when we announce the prizes!
