iWeekend is an intensive and innovative experience that brings together talented entrepreneurs and professionals of different profiles to select 3 ideas and bring these ideas to reality by collaboratively developing a business plan and a prototype, all in one weekend. The final outputs of the event are a prototype, a basic business plan, a product demo and a possible team.
iWeekend is ideal for entrepreneurs looking to get started and for professionals and freelancers looking to broaden their horizons while taking on a challenge and collaborating in a project they like.
The event was founded in Barcelona in November 2007 by Luv Sayal.
