Have you ever had an idea for improving Green Economy, Education, Health, Smart Cities and Better Living? Startup Weekend Cape Town is the perfect opportunity to transform your ideas into action in 54 hours. Find the right people with complementary skills & the passion & dedication to build a viable product in one weekend. Design for learning, conduct user tests, receive coaching from experienced designers & industry professionals and win prizes that will help take your idea to the next level!

The event: We bring together a diverse group of people passionate about making a positive impact. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, design products and launch startups. Startup Weekend Cape Town begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on user research, customer development, validating their ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced coaches from relevant markets. On Sunday, teams demo their products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
