MAIN GOAL IN MIND

Participants come out of the event with a validated solution (proof that people will buy the product), working business model (how they will sell and price the product), and a Minimum Viable Product (prototype of the product) on Sunday night.

“It only makes sense that Cebu — a gold mine of talent, ideas, and entrepreneurs — participates in this movement. This Startup Weekend edition is special because this is exclusive to the youth, with the goal of inspiring interest in technology, design, and/or entrepreneurship,” says Justine Win Cañete, Lead Organizer of Startup Weekend Cebu Youth Edition.

The event has a registration fee of Php1000 which includes 6 meals (snacks included), an event shirt, event goodie bags, and the experience to have a taste of what it takes to get your business (and your skills) to fly!

The event is sponsored by the supportive entrepreneurial institutions and businesses like The Grid Pad and Creative Campus, Filipino Homes, University of Visayas New School, Symph, Micab, Payruler, Uniform Solutions, PRWorks, ASPACE Cebu, Ideaspace Foundation, World of Fun, Tangerine Global Inc., Opus Solutions Inc., Sunstar Weekend, and Paku by Chef Binux.
