What is this edition about?

We are the Global Startup Weekend Sustainable Revolution, a global initiative led by volunteers in order to put sustainable development at the forefront of the world stage. Because environmental sustainability is one of the biggest challenges humanity is facing, it’s our duty to help entrepreneurs find the best solutions to overcome it. Global Startup Weekend Sustainable Revolution connects entrepreneurs, organizing teams, and startup communities around the world towards sustainability entrepreneurship.

The global edition will take place on 2 weekends, on June 14-16 and 21-23 in more than 50 cities.
After that, a final round online will be held where each local winner will pitch its idea in a one minute video. The best projects elected by the public and our jury will get special prizes to help them launch their startups in real life!
