Techstars Startup Weekend is returning to D.C. this weekend, Nov. 15 through 17, via its Latinx in Tech initiative, which puts a focus on innovation in the Latin community. The event will kick off Global Entrepreneurship Week taking place Nov. 18 to 24 in D.C.
The Startup Weekend event will span three days and invite participants to build a startup in a weekend, gain access to mentors and pitch coaches, receive meals while they work and build connections with other technologists and potential investors.
Hosted at MakeOffices’ 2000 Pennsylvania Ave. NW location, the weekend will kick off Friday, Nov. 15, at 5 p.m. and run through Sunday evening, when it will conclude with a demo event.
Tickets for full participants start at $50, with a $25 ticket for community members interested in attending the demo event.
Last month, Techstars reported that its Startup Weekend events have helped bring together more than 193,000 entrepreneurs in 150 countries across 23,000 teams who worked to build startups.-30-
