Parvis Sainte-Gudule, 5 1000 Brussels, Belgium

Startup Weekend is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 500 cities around the world. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, join 300.000 starters and register now for the best weekend of your life.

Belgium’s first ever Makers Startup Weekend is here – bringing the Maker’s Movement to the Capital of Europe, at CO.STATION!

The maker culture is a contemporary subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY (Do It Yourself) culture. All of us are Makers, we make our world!

You too, can be a Maker! Whatever your background, you can become a Maker and a Startup Weekend Maker is an excellent place to start. You will have access to 3D printers, laser cutters and open source hardware at CO.STATION to prototype your idea.

You will:

  • Pitch your idea (if you want to; its an open stage format)
  • Form a team around an idea and make it real
  • Get grilled and coached by some of the toughest industry experts
  • Present to a panel of expert judges and win amazing prizes
  • Get a starters kit with basic hardware to be used in prototyping
  • 50-75 EUR budget per team to get any additional things needed for your prototype
  • Test the limits of sleeplessness ;)

This will be the 1st event of its kind in Belgium where the local startup ecosystem will join in for a three day marathon of co-creation, making and growth-hacking!
