YallaStartup Weekend

A number of you must’ve already heard about the StartupWeekend event concept, which has taken place in 54 cities in the US and around the world, with Oman being the first Arab country to host a couple such events recently.

YallaStartup plan to bring the concept to Beirut (Lebanon) too on on the weekend of November 12-14 at Berytech.

The weekend is a hands-on event that encourages out of the box creative thinking and startup creation. The idea is very simple: participants join on the first day of the weekend with a group of highly motivated developers, product, marketing, graphic and business people all mixed together. They team up, decide on an idea, code and deliver a prototype at the end of the weekend.

During that time, VCs and experts would spend time in the venue with the participants, giving some short talks and following how things develop, in the hope of stumbling across the next big thing.

Winning teams will receive prizes, as well as recognition on YallaStartup and their press partners.

The event is open to everyone, and for people in Jordan or Syria who are interested, there will also be sponsored bus rides.

To learn more about the event and register, you can go to the YallaStartup Weekend site. Registrations before September 30th are $25 cheaper.
