Startup Weekend Reaches 100,000 Entrepreneurs

2012 in Review:
Startup Weekend Reaches 100,000 Entrepreneurs 

The Impact Report is a look at the amazing work done by this community to change
entrepreneurship in 2012. It covers who they are, who helped us get there, the stories that touched us all, and a glimpse of where they're headed now.

The Impact Report covers amazing stories including Nagla Metwally creating a website to help mothers find nurseries in Egypt, Slavica's Croatian startup that re-purposes plastic bags into eco-friendly accessories, and the amazing teams, accomplishments, and entrepreneurs that made up GSB. Last year, we held events in 111 countries and thanks to our biggest year yet, created 100,000 total entrepreneurs thanks to 3,000 organizers, facilitators, and volunteers who put in over 300,000 hours into building local and global ecosystems. At the heart of everything we do is our second-to-none global community - without our community, none of this would be possible, and we dedicate these accomplishments to your hard work and passion.

Find out more about this amazing community of volunteers, organizers, partners, and community builders that is making the world a better place for entrepreneurs.
