Get ready for FRIDAY!

Time is running out and we are counting down last hours before the official launch of the first Startup Weekend event in the Czech Republic. Here are some useful points that may help you stand out on Friday evening as well as kick off your entrepreneurial career.

When deciding about what to take with you, do not forget just to bring your laptop, business cards (or smartphone with the Bump App) and something to take notes on during team discussions or educational sessions (paper notepads may be helpful to record your creative or graphic contributions).

You do not have to print out your ticket as your name is already in our database.

Try to have enough sleep during the week. Be sure that the weekend is going to be really intensive!

Now it is time to turn the attention to Friday night itself. To get your business idea effectively across, you are supposed to prepare an entrepreneurial pitch in the duration of 60 seconds. The time limit is strictly precise. As you are not allowed to have your slides or any other tools with you and you will have to rely just on your own voice, we highly recommend you preparing your pitch properly in advance. Focus on the key message and show your passion and enthusiasm!

Here is a well-tried pitch format for your inspiration:
You and your background (5-10 seconds)
Problem that your product should solve / powerful story (10-20 seconds)
Product description and benefits, how it actually solves the problem (10-20 seconds)
People you need (developer, designer, business/marketing person) (5-10 seconds)

Finally, create a name for your startup so that the facilitator can give it a title!

After all pitches, you will have more time to mingle. If you pitched an idea, this is your time to start recruiting others who may be interested in it. If you did not pitch or have trouble finding others to join your team, use this time to seek actively out those that pitched other ideas you find interesting.

Finally, the crowd will vote and select the most popular pitches.This is a simple and effective way to guarantee a quick formation of working teams. It is by no means an exclusive process and if you pitched an idea which is not selected, you are more than welcome to work on it if you can find other people who want to work together with you.

At the end of this session, a certain number of teams, each formed around a unique startup idea, is going to be created. This is when the real startup madness begins…

Remember: preparation is the key! Looking forward to meeting you on Friday!
