You don’t have to look for a golden opportunity to make your dream come true because Weekend Ventures, a 54 hour weekend event, has brought in a leading edge for aspiring entrepreneurs, designers and developers to chunk in their innovative ideas, build prototypes and launch their startups within three days. It is an event where you can form teams, start building your products, learn from mentors and ultimately know the valuable ingredients for building up a successful venture.

At Weekend Ventures the only thing that will stand out about yourself would be – Your Idea. Once you pitch in your idea , people who like your work would want to associate with you and hence forth you will be able to form a group of like minded people. After you have formed a team (you get to choose who would be your team members based on their interests and skills), start brainstorming and allocating different assignments to your team mates solely based on their area of expertise. The program also gives participants a structured way to go about building your startup. During the session, participants would get to interact with notable entrepreneurs, industry experts, coaches in the field of technology, design, management and receive valuable feedback from the judges.
