Have an idea? Looking to start your own startup? Well, we have some good news for you. Techstars Global Startup Weekend is coming up soon with an opportunity for (would be) entrepreneurs to get inspiration, education, and guidance, as well as move on to the next step on a global scale. The new edition of the event will be held between November 10 and 12 in two Chinese cities—Shanghai and Suzhou.

This Startup Weekend will gather between 60 and 80 participants at the very beginning of their journey, typically people who might have an idea, looking for co-founders and insights into creating a business, Matthieu Bodin, Regional Manager for Greater China at Techstars Startup Programs told TechNode.

“Startup Weekend is not a conference, workshop or a panel discussion. We expect participants to actually work and that’s why we call it an experiential learning experience. People learn how to create a business by actually doing it,” said Bodin. Participants will be pitching ideas, forming teams, learning basic concepts about entrepreneurship, but they will also go outside of the venue to interview customers who might be random strangers, he added.
