  • Techstars Startup Weekend Los Angeles April 2019 - 3rd Party Event

    This is a Third Party Event -- You must register through Eventbrite. Use this link for a discount: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/techstars-startup-weekend-los-angeles-april-2019-tickets-57143917997?fbclid=IwAR33IPzgOymg23QEsQeH9X2hGUGDPDTDtq783qF2tz0kPCXhVqrsITkbkTI&discount=805VIP ----------- The AI LA Community is proud to present Techstars Startup Weekend Los Angeles: AI For Sustainability. We are living in a serious environmental crisis and we need your help! We are inviting cross-disciplinary teams to solve challenges in sustainability and climate change. This is not your typical "hackathon!" You'll learn about customer research, how to build a company, and a minimum viable product (MVP). Don't worry if you don't have an idea or team pre-weekend. Our AI Earth Summit will produce a lot of research on the following topics, so you will have a lot of resources to help you and your team solve some big problems in 54 hours. Climate change. Biodiversity and conservation. Healthy oceans. Water security. Clean air. Weather and disaster resilience. Environmental Justice. Sustainable Mobility. Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with? Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend. What do you need to bring? Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team. Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea. Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes: 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend Benefits and discounts from our global partners One-on-one time with amazing mentors A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world. All the internet and coffee you can consume. Keynote by: Christine Harada, President of i(x) investments. Ms. Harada has over 20 years of success in leading government and management consulting organizations. She previously served as the Federal Chief Sustainability Officer for the United States during the Obama administration. In this role, she provided oversight for all sustainability-related initiatives across the federal government in energy, fleet, and acquisitions-game-changing improvements that added to our nation’s clean energy future. -------------- This is a Third Party Event -- You must register through Eventbrite.
