Startup Weekend comes to Sulaimani, Iraq on August 29, 2013.
SW Suly will follow the basic Startup Weekend model, anyone can pitch their idea, receive feedback, and vote on others' ideas. Teams form around the top startup ideas and delve into a 54-hour long frenzy involving coding, designing, business model creation, and market validation. The teams then present their refined ideas in front of local key figures of entrepreneurship. Check out this video of the previous SW Suly.
