Startup Weekend SouthWest (#SWSaar on twitter) is a three-day event open to creative team players with entrepreneurial spirit and skills in IT, engineering, design, arts, business development, marketing, etc.

The event takes place from 30th October to 1st November 2015, and everyone is welcome to join.

- Anyone with a fresh and innovative business idea can make a 60-second pitch right at the beginning of the event and rally for the attendants' votes for the selection of the most promising projects on Friday evening. If your startup idea is related to "smart insurance" or "personal financial management", read the information about the CosmosDirekt business challenge on the following website:

- Experienced experts, founders, or students enthusiastic about participating actively in any of these new ventures can then join the team they like best – and contribute to an impressive project presentation on Sunday, with a strong startup team, a smart business plan, or perhaps even a working prototype!

The only restriction is that you may not already be working on your business (not counting research for the pitch preparation).
