What do we do in the global Startup Weekend community?
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders providing another opportunity for critical feedback.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

Why Startup Weekend Health?
Our goal is to bring together the healthcare community, designers, business, IT-profiles and entrepreneurs to facilitate the formation of new ideas. We all face challenges such as the aging society in Denmark and hospitals running out of capacity. We wish to bring in new technologies which have potential of improving the Danish healthcare system and draw attention to the new areas of tele-healthcare and general health-empowerment.
We aim to engage public and private companies and organizations which are involved in healthcare system, as well as inventors of technologies, software developers, designers and students with interests in Healthcare and E-health. They participate as mentors, judges, in the organizer team and as participants.
All in all Startup Weekend Aarhus Health 21 – 23 February 2014 is an unique chance to experience and work interdisciplinary with some of the people who by first hand experiences understand real user needs and challenging issues in todays healthcare environments. On top of that there will be lots of health happenings through out the weekend to make us think new thought on the health issue and greate fun.
