Entrepreneurs and those interested in trying out life as a startup founder will gather in Cork, March 29th-31st for what is the world’s biggest learning programme for entrepreneurs.

A 54-hour programme that runs from a Friday night to Sunday afternoon will bring together designers, developers, entrepreneurs and experts from all domains to do amazing things, during Techstars Startup Weekend, powered by Google for Startups.

Attendees will learn how to build a company in a weekend, as participants take their product or business idea to the next level and join in a huge worldwide network of entrepreneurs.

As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

Since starting in 2009, the Weekend has run in more than 150 countries with over 4,000+ individual events.

Completely volunteer organised, the not-for-profit event is designed to power and effect real change in the entrepreneurial community around it.

This year’s event will take place at Cork’s city centre innovation campus, Republic Of Work.
