Startup (and deploy) Weekend with Wix

Join Startup Weekend and Wix for a 54-hour whirlwind of pitching, business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of a panel of judges and an opportunity to win great prizes sponsored by Wix.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and teams organically form around the top ideas. All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome – remember that the sky is the limit!

Over the course of this Startup Weekend, Wix team members will offer one-on-one guidance on Wix.com’s new SDK and API environment, along with keys to building and deploying a successful app in the new Wix App Market. These resources are available for teams interested in incorporating the Wix platform. Ultimately you and your teammates will need to decide which tools best suit your startup needs.
