What is Startup Weekend Tokyo?

Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

SW is not ideason, Hackathon, business plan contest.
Discover customer's problem. We will build up the product and repeat the verification of the appropriateness of the hypothesis and the solution to the problem. It will be a challenge to how much we can achieve this within a limited time of 54 hours.
Everything necessary for team startup is a condensed program, and SW is also the name of the community for those who continue to challenge. An event called an organizer, which has always been one or more participants' experiences, has been created by the members of the management member, and the community is established by members qualified as facilitators to protect the value of the brand.


"Startup Weekend Tokyo GreenTech" which will be held this time will be a SW as a "theme event" set as the theme "Utilization of technology on Energy, Environment and Sustainability. Participants who want to announce ideas on the first day and want to recruit team members need to pitch 60 seconds along this theme. Also the final pitch in the evening of the last day must be in line with the theme.
