This year, San Antonio is taking part in Global Startup Weekend Women - a Techstars initiative that has brought together dozens of cities around the world, uniting thousands of next-generation women founders and community leaders. San Antonio is proud to be a community that empowers women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world.

At Global Startup Weekend Women, our goal is to encourage and inspire more female leaders in startup teams and to connect more women to the vast number of resources and mentors available in our startup community. That's why we want you to be a part of this weekend, and to join some of the most talented and entrepreneurial-minded women across our community and region. This event is geared towards getting women more involved, but men are welcome to participate!


Techstars Global Startup Weekend Women will be hosted at Geekdom in San Antonio the weekend of September 27th-29th. Participants can find more information and sign up for this event at startupweekend.geekdom.com.

These tickets include 7 meals and snacks throughout the weekend, an event t-shirt, opportunity to meet with amazing mentors all weekend, and the opportunity for the winning teams to receive prize packages that have a total value of over $12,000.

What is Startup Weekend?

Techstars Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where attendees pitch ideas, form teams and start companies. These events are very community-focused and provide a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors, and momentum for their ideas.

The participants that attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional) on Friday, the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges and potential investors, with the final winning prize packages to help continue on with their ideas past the weekend.
