The Startup Accelerator is a free 'un-conference' for anyone starting a project or business. An 'un-conference' is participant-driven and creates an open environment for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity.
Startup Accelerator is an event where everyone is able to contribute and pick topics to learn or to teach. Bring your expertise, creativity and curiosity. If you have a project, are an entrepreneur, a professional, an idea person or just need a fresh perspective, this event is for you. All attendees are encouraged arrive prepared to teach, learn and network.
Startup Accelerator Features:
- Open education sessions selected and created by the participants, for the participants
