About this event series

About Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

The Women's Edition:

The Women's Edition of Startup Weekend DC is first of its kind in this community. Typically, most startup events have a 70/30 ratio of men to women participants. In the Women's Edition, we want to flip that ratio and create an event focused on promoting women entrepreneurship in the DC community without excluding male participants.

This event will take place at 1776 and General Assembly DC! We're also happy to announce Booz Allan Hamilton is our platinum sponsor for this event. Booz Allen Hamilton is committed to creating an environment where talented women in technology can build exceptional careers. With great excitement, Booz Allen joins Startup Weekend DC to empower the next women leaders in technology and women entrepreneurs through the first ever Startup Weekend DC Women’s Edition.
