Join us for the next Startup Weekend Shanghai - Environment Edition soon to arrive in Shanghai. Meet like-minded people who are crazy about entrepreneurship and have the drive to work on ideas that might actually save the planet!

In Shanghai, a city with over 24 million inhabitants, we see the pressure humanity is putting on the environment every day. At SWSH Environment, participants will work on innovative tech solutions to address these environmental challenges.

Whether it is eco-friendly, resource-saving ideas to improve your local community or global ones, anything goes in this special environment edition.

With the guidance of industry mentors, participants have access to tools and frameworks to build prototypes and effectively create a new startup.

So if you are a developer, a designer, or an entrepreneur who understands that the environment and any type of advancement go hand in hand, join us at SWSH Environment for a high-energy weekend you won't forget.

About Startup Weekend
"Remember, we don't inherit the earth from our fathers, we borrow it from our children."
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  

Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from localentrepreneurials. 

The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
