Singapore: Startup Weekend includes indoor ag theme

On the weekend of 20-22 January 2017, over 150 passionate startup enthusiasts will be gathered at Google's spanking new HQ to hack out their next company. They are participants of Startup Weekend, a global movement of entrepreneurs who are crazy about starting a technology-based business and forging bonds that will last a lifetime.

In just 54 hours, participants will form teams, brainstorm, design a product, validate their business idea and pitch in front of experienced judges on Sunday evening. Throughout the weekend, there will be highs and lows, frustrations and moments of triumph, but some people will meet their co-founder at the event, and some teams will even move on to start a company after the event. Win or lose, we are certain that new lessons will be learnt, ideas will be tested, limits will be pushed and lives will be changed forever.

To spice things up, there will be a few special activities: Pizza & Beer Party on Friday night to break the ice and form teams. On Saturday, there will be special mentors and guests down to interact with the teams. In the true spirit of Startup Weekend, there will be local startups, budding founders and cool companies to sponsor, showcase and network with you.

Startup Weekend has a strong brand in Singapore. Globally, it has touched more than 1140 cities and its alumni consists of more than 480,000 entrepreneurs. Notable success stories coming out of Startup Weekend include Carousell, which started off as SnapSell at Startup Weekend 2012 and has since raised nearly SGD $50 million in Series B funding led by Rakuten Ventures in August 2016.
