Day 1 of Startup Weekend Global
Day 1 of Startup Weekend Global wrapped yesterday!
1500+ participants and observers.
Hundreds of ideas.
Renaud, co-founder of Eventbrite and Malle, CEO of Techstars joined us for the opening and shared some interesting insights.
Did you know Renaud met his wife at Startup Weekend Paris years ago?
He shared about how ideas are a wonderful thing and we should always remain optimistic about the future.
Startup Weekend is not all about finding a developer to help code your next app.
It is about embracing ideas and learning, building your startup and networking with like-minded entrepreneurs.
Maelle shared about a fellow community leader, Aldrich, who happens to be a good friend of mine.
How Aldrich started as a shy mentee and quickly blossomed into a confident young entrepreneur, building up his passion in UI/UX into his full-time job.
So don’t be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone!
Be open to new experiences and build up the appetite to learn new skills.
Entrepreneurship is a beautiful thing.
How can we not be romantic about it?
Cheers to the wonderful ideas that blooming over the next 9 days! 😎🤘
