About Event

Join the Techstars Startup Weekend DeepTech Belfast to kickstart your entrepreneurial journey! 

Startup Weekend is a 54h-long program during which the best would-be entrepreneurs in the DeepTech field will have the chance to meet a team, ideate, receive mentorship and pitch their idea to a panel of judges. The objective is to offer would-be entrepreneurs the opportunity to test whether the startup life is indeed for them. 

More than 400,000 people have participated in Startup Weekends in more than 150 countries, and the Startup Weekend methodology has successfully yielded thousands of companies, some of which became unicorns.

This Startup Weekend will focus on supporting teams wanting to develop DeepTech solutions, and more specific in the AI, HealthTech and InsurTech verticals!

Please note this event is designed for all aspiring entrepreneurs. This includes aspiring entrepreneurs currently studying, aspiring entrepreneurs currently working or anyone who wants a taste of the startup life, whether you have an idea or not

What will happen: 

  • 26 July (start 5:00 PM): meet your fellow participants, network and form your team! You’ll be working together on your startup throughout the weekend.

  • 27 July (full-day): ideate, validate your idea with potential customers, receive world class mentorship from the Techstars network and start building your solution.

  • 28 July (full-day): continue working on your startup, and pitch your idea to a panel of judges (investors, Belfast and Ireland-based ecosystem actors and seasoned entrepreneurs) in a Demo Day format. We will end the day with an informal networking get together!

  • Location: The Graduate School, Queen's University Belfast, University Road, Belfast BT7 1NN

What you will get out of the experience:

  • Meet inspirational like-minded entrepreneurs, investors and ecosystem stakeholders of the Northern Irish ecosystem.

  • Form a team, test and iterate on a startup idea, receive mentorship and advice from seasoned mentors, and pitch in front of a panel of experts to receive feedback. Get the full startup experience in only 54 hours!

What you need to attend:

  • Your good humor, open-mindedness, creativity and ideas. You do not need a startup idea to attend the event – you can either join forces with someone who has an idea, or simply ideate a new one with your team!

  • Your laptop, or any technological device you may need to work effectively throughout the weekend.
