Startup Weekend

First Startup Weekend Jura will take place on 11th to 13th May in Saignelégier. This event will be the first of this kind to take place outside of a city, at least in Switzerland.

The concept of the event is dead simple: from Friday to Sunday night you’ll have the opportunity to work on an innovative idea in small teams composed of other dynamic people.

Experienced mentors will provide advices, feedback and constructive but sometimes hard feedback (everything an entrepreneur needs!). Startup Weekend always take place in a relax, creative and energizing atmosphere… But don’t expect to be totally relaxed: you’ll working hard, because you have a fixed deadline on Sunday evening when all teams pitch to a jury and to the public (open to anyone)!

Event will take place in a brand new wellness center (Centre de Loisirs) and provide an amazing experience to the participants: can you imagine yourself working on your idea in a jacuzzi? Imagine that you’re not making significant progress on your project… Go to the SPA and brainstorm there! Personally, I’m absolutely convinced that this kind of location can help you beeing amazingly creative. For instance, I’ve often my best ideas

(if any!) when I’m biking or something absolutely not related to the problem I’m trying to solve. 

Wellness by nightAs the event will be in a wellness center/hostel, participants also have the opportunity to sleep there… There are wonderful rooms for affordable price (starting at CHF 98.00 – but don’t wait, there is a big demand for them) and even cheap sleeping opportunity (in dormitory, for CHF 25-27.-/night)…

Oh, useful precision: weekend is open to everyone. from students to senior executives, no matter what’s your current position during the week! So, don’t wait… register here NOW!

I’m really looking forward to this event, as I’m sure some crazy promising ideas will be presented!
