Startup Weekend Romania from 9 to 11th of November



The next Startup Weekend Romania will be held in Bucharest from 9 to 11th of  November 2012.

All weekend long, you’ll learn all about how to build your lean startup: business model, validation, prototype, pitching. You don’t even need to have any idea yet about a business: you can just go there to meet other entrepreneurs and brainstorm all weekend. It’s also a great place to meet co-founders if you do have an idea, but you’re more a marketing or sales type and you can’t manage to whip up a prototype yourself.

Speakers and mentors at Startup Weekend Romania include:
