Startup Week-end IA

Your idea in 54 hours, experience supported by Réseau IA

Join the first edition about Artificial Intelligence of Belgium !

Together with an awesome group of people, you’ll work during 54 hours on the development of some disruptive and innovative businesses that use and empower Artificial Intelligence to contribute to solve problems. Some of the topics covered are: Health, waste management, education, social, mobility, access to energy, technology and much more.  
Do you have an idea you’d like to tackle or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with?

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:

  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of entrepreneurs, developers and designers eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.

  • Pitch your idea (if you want to; it’s an open stage format)
  • Form a team around an idea and make it real
  • Get coached by some of the toughest industry experts
  • Present your business model to a panel of expert judges and win amazing prizes
