About startup weekend:
Startup Weekend has been introduced to over 15,000 entrepreneurs in more than 100 cities around the world. Founded in June 2007, Startup Weekend provides a platform to pitch an idea, build the concept and present it to the audience in around 50 hours. At least 500 companies have been created over the lifetime of the worldwide event raising more than $2MK in financing.
Startup Weekend attendees are made up from the width and breadth of the startup and entrepreneurial community – from mobile and server developers to technical writers and lawyers, and even investors – or people like you. The audience consists of individuals who have a burning idea and are looking to put it into code, as well as those who are looking for team members to join their project and would like to "test the waters".
This Startup Weekend will be held in The Peres Center for Peace's facility. The event is planned to be significantly larger with 160 attendees and will offer more services than before. The Center will work with the management team in bringing Israeli & Arab entrepreneurs and "startupists" from the ICT community in Israel as well as the Palestinian Authority.
