Qué es un Startup Weekend

En tan sólo 54 horas, logramos que todos los participantes de Startup Weekend vivan las diferentes facetas que trae consigo la creación de una startup, dejando en ellos un aprendizaje que facilita el acceso a la cultura de innovación. Al inicio los asistentes presentan sus mejores ideas para formar equipos. El miércoles y el jueves se enfocan en validarlas, practicar metodologías de Lean Startup y construir un producto mínimamente viable. El viernes en la tarde, demuestran sus startups y reciben retroalimentación de un panel de expertos.

¿Qué harás en el evento?

En este evento de 54 horas, Startup Weekend Corporate te ayudará a hacer tangible una idea poniendo en práctica la pasión por el desarrollo que tenemos en el Banco.

1. Trae una idea (o únete a un grupo que presente una idea que te interesa): La idea debe ser sobre un proceso, producto, programa, o servicio que innove en cómo trabajamos, como colaboramos y somos más ágiles y eficientes en el Grupo BID.

2. Seduce a la audiencia: En 1 minuto los asistentes se deben enamorar de tu idea, por lo tanto, deberás saber cómo venderla para cautivarlos y con ganas de ser parte de tu equipo.

3. Se parte de un equipo: ¡Todos pueden participar! No importa que no tengas una idea propia. Si una idea captura tu atención ¡no lo dudes y haz equipo!

4. Convence a los jueces: Al final del último día, le vendes tu prototipo a los jueces. Esto es tan importante como tu idea en sí, debes transmitir los puntos primordiales e importantes.

5. Aprende: El objetivo en este evento es aprender mientras se trabaja, reflexionar y explorar nuevos modelos de co-crear. Recuerda que tendrás la agradable experiencia de trabajar y compartir con otras personas apasionadas por el desarrollo y la innovación.
