‘LexTech’– Centre for Law, Entrepreneurship and Innovation is delighted to host Google Startup Weekend Cuttack (NLUO) edition from March 24 – 26, 2017 at National Law University Odisha, Cuttack, comfortably boasting to have become the first law school in India to do that.
What is a Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.
It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 120 countries around the world.
Be prepared to engage yourself in an aura of excitement and creativity.
How does it work?
We aim to bring together enthusiasts like you to share ideas, form teams, build products, and, most importantly, launch startups.
Friday: Attendees pitch their ideas and inspire others to join their teams. Teams are therefore created to work on the best ideas.
Saturday and Sunday: This is where you debate, build, and pitch. And build some more. Teams will focus on building a prototype of their idea/product.
During this period teams will also focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup methodologies and building a minimum viable product.
Sunday: In the evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.
Can I Participate?
