Share your idea, build your team and get to work: life is short, so why wasting time? Give all you’ve got and create a new business from scratch in a weekend. In a unique atmosphere, people from various backgrounds come together and develop early business concepts.
Mentors with proven experience in start-ups will guide you with first-hand tips on how to make a successful business. By Sunday, you’ll have the foundations for a functional start-up: the projects developed during the weekend will be evaluated by a panel of judges.
You can either pitch your own business idea or help a presenter develop their idea. From business guy to programmer to designer – everyone is welcome!PHOTO GALLERY

“Take some action!” defines Güney’s perspective on missions and eventually achievements. He sees his projects as his not-yet-born kids which need to be given birth to, raised and then freed to the nature. He organizes. From one night stand ( e.g a house concert) to long-term relationships (e.g startup live istanbul) he likes ‘being involved’. He loves people coming from different walks of life, to interact, work and hang out with them.
