FoundHer presents techstars_Startup Weekend Hawaiʻi. 3 days to make your entrepreneur ideas happen.

Calling all founders, entrepreneurs, creatives, technologists with an idea on how to better our communities in Hawaiʻi.

Transform a rough idea to maturity in just 54 hours! A 3-day weekend for entrepreneurs to pitch an idea (or join an idea that you are passionate about), find like-minded people, grow your network & learn new skills. Weʻll have workshops by experts in their field and mentors to help guide you and speed up progress. On the last day, pitch your startup concept to a panel & the public to get feedback – and maybe give life to your new startup!

  • Entrepreneurs with an idea stage venture
  • While FoundHer is the presenter, this isnʻt open to only women! We welcome all genders who are excited to support women and their ideas
  • You have an idea for a startup, want to get started but donʻt know how yet.
  • Both technical and non-technical – whether youʻre a developer, front-end designer, UX/UI or creative in graphics, copywriting, or community organizer. We need you!
  • This is a safe space to demo your idea
