Startup Weekend - An Initiative by Marc Nager

Startup Weekend is entrepreneurship’s democratizer. Regardless of who’s who, a group of unrelated individuals meet up for a weekend to share ideas.  Competence and knowledge are the currency that is traded.”

This entrepreneurial story is about turning around. How businesses could change shape and spread from one place to another, from one country to around the globe.   The initiative is powered by Kaufmann Foundation.
With his excellent vision and entrepreneurial qualities, Marc Nagerturned a for-profit organization into one of the most successful not-for-profit global organization working towards cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit in many countries. Startup Weekend was formed in 2007 with the idea to promote week long entrepreneurial marathons where people from various different business and IT background come together to pitch, select and work on promising ideas for start ups. Marc Nager and his co founders bought the venture because of its global potential and turned it into a not-for-profit and spread it over the globe.
