Start your business: go from idea to prototype in one weekend. StartHereNow is a women’s startup weekend.

Start Here Now ’17 is a start-up weekend for women. Part incubator, part pitch-day, brainstorming session, and hackathon, we help you Start your business. Here. Now.

Our mission is to create a supportive and collaborative environment where women can bring to life ideas that they are passionate about and build companies that solve big problems.

How does it work? Founders submit their ideas and apply to lead a team. Passionate, interested women with diverse backgrounds apply to work on a team and bring an idea to life.

Who should apply? Anyone is welcome. No prior experience or particular skills are needed. Past participants have been developers, designers, personal trainers, MBAs, moms, engineers, marketers, fashionistas, operations experts, data scientists, event planners … if you’re curious about entrepreneurship, this is for you!

How much does it cost? $25/person for registrations before September 30, $35/person for registrations thereafter. Please apply below and grab your ticket here. The registration fee covers the competition, eight meals, all refreshments, an official StartHereNow t-shirt, the invitation-only Pre-Event on October 4th, all training & mentoring, and … a whole lot of fun! If you volunteer as an Event Ambassador, your registration fee is waived.

Yes, I’d like to participate!
