More than 15,000 entrepreneurs will come together for over 200 events November 11-13 & 18-20 for Global Startup Weekend!
Global Startup Weekend (GSW) is the same initiative you know and love, just by another name and with a few changes. The biggest shift this year is the removal of the post-weekend video competition and the addition of new and exclusive startup resources for you!

Why the change? As our community around the world continues to grow and evolve, GSW will provide more value to organizers, attendees, and communities around the world and we believe this shift will do just that!
