Startup Weekend NYC Financial Inclusion Edition

Let’s explore ideas and the entrepreneurial journey around Financial Inclusion together

Do you have an idea you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with? 
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
Why Financial Inclusion?

We are organizing this weekend to focus on ideas surrounding financial inclusion because we have a passion and interest around the idea of accessible financial services for all. We believe that an event organized to bring a diverse set of people together to talk more about these ideas will help illuminate ways we can work to bring solutions to the surface. No entrepreneurial experience is required to attend and meaningfully participate in this weekend of activities – we would love to work with and interact with anyone interested in exploring financial inclusion through this three day, fast-paced, guided entrepreneurial journey.

What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You’ll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
