1 Startup Weekend Sponsorship Proposal +

2 About Startup Weekend Our mission is to teach and promote entrepreneurship in local communities. As a 501(c)3 charity, we rely on our partners to keep growing Startup Weekend around the world. When you join us as a sponsor partner your company will be seen by community influencers. Your products will be used hands-on by attendees, thereby tying your brand to the positive and transformative experience that is Startup Weekend. We do events that bring developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups. Startup Weekend begin with open-mic 60-second pitches that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Team spend Saturday and Sunday focus on customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced mentors. On Sunday, teams demo their products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts. The real value in a Startup Weekend is not how many startups are launched. Rather, it’s about learning through the act of creation, developing deeper relationships than a typical networking event, matching potential cofounders, validating ideas and experimenting in a risk-free environment, and for many, it’s about taking the first step into entrepreneurship. Our Community is arguably the largest network of existing and aspiring entrepreneurs in the world. We are a highly technical community; 53% identify themselves as software developers. Our attendees are creative, influential and driven. These are the kinds of people that will bring your product back into the office on Monday morning after using it during the weekend.
