It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

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.

Elizabeth, Branka, and Matthew will join an outstanding panel of coaches including Kemp Edmonds from HootSuite, Rob Adamovsky from Best Buy, Thealzel Lee from E-Fund, Kimberly Kaplan from Offeron, and Alex Hobbs from CampusAuction.

From launching our own platform to supporting young developers (did you miss YWorld’s Spring 2013 $1,500 Hackathon?), our team is committed to cultivating the next generation of professionals.

Donnelly Group donated a prize of $100 for the Startup Weekend; YWorld is sponsoring the prize, which the winner can spend at the Donnelly Group.
