Members of Monaco’s Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCI) are hosting this weekend the fourth edition of “Startup Weekend”, which runs April 21 to the 23, and helps startups see the light of day.
The Startup Weekend Monaco attracts engineers, developers, entrepreneurs, marketing specialists, graphic designers and artists, who are working together during the weekend to establish their new business.
Monaco’s Junior Chamber of Commerce is the partner for the event, which last year included 81 participants and 36 ideas that turned into 10 projects. Over 54 non-stop hours, the schedule is broken down into: Day One – 60-second Pitch & Team Up, Day Two – Learn & Work, and Day Three – Present & Chose.
Startup Weekend was founded in 2007 by Andrew Hyde and is a non-profit organisation with its headquarters in Seattle, in the US. Thanks to the concept, more than 2,500 businesses have been created around the world in the last five years. The global sponsors are Google, Eventbrite and CO.
