Startup Weekend Damascus
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur?

The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

Why we do it now?

Startup Weekend Damascus aims to spot the light on entrepreneurship and its importance for the Syrian youth to create their own opportunities, control their destiny in an uncertain future and unleash their creativity in the time their country needs it most. Most importantly entrepreneurship is the hope and key factor for the Syrian youth to contribute proactively and shape the future of their country.

Organizing Startup Weekend in Damascus, in the context of the intense and hard situations currently in Syria is a challenge in itself. Yet the importance of the event to draw the attention of local and global community to the untapped talent and creativity of the Syrian youth makes this challenge worth to be undertaken. One aspect of the country that has not been destroyed is the creativity and willingness of its youth to build a better future of equity and prosperity. Please help us by joining and being part of this great event!
