Every year, as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week Celebrations, a Startup Weekend event is held in Accra. Startup Weekend, as always described, is
an intense 54-hour event 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
Over the years, Startup Weekend Accra winners have received notable mentions with Dropifi becoming the first African startup to be a 500 Startups alumnus. From Dropifi, all the way to Chillax, Startup Weekend has been a great event to meet developers, designers, business minds, and other great tech enthusiasts who are serious about building an MVP within 54 hours.
This year, Startup Weekend comes off from 21st to 23rd November, 2014, starting at 6.30pm on Friday. The event will be held at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology over the weekend. It’s always a joy to see dreams and ideas come alive. To register for the event, visit their event page on Eventbrite and pay the GHC20 fee on entry.
Come share ideas, build products, have fun and win! See you there!.
