Refund Policy and Terms of Agreement

Refund Policy

Startup Weekend will honor refunds up to 7 days before the event kickoff. We do not offer refunds the week of the event (due to the need to pre-purchase food/drink and supplies). If your ticket is not eligible for a refund, we strongly suggest passing on your ticket to someone else! Please send refund requests to support@startupweekend.org and make sure to include your name, the event city and date.

Code of Conduct

It is our job to provide you with an incredible networking and learning opportunity. Our intention is that you meet some amazing people that you might actually start a company with, build relationships with coaches, and learn from your peers. The event is intended to be a collaborative forum for sharing, learning, building, and having fun. As such, by registering as a participant, you acknowledge that any ideas shared by you or anyone else over the course of the event are contributions to the overall experience and community. If you as a participant are worried about someone stealing your ideas, please reconsider your participation in the event itself or simply refrain from sharing specifics about your idea. As a member of your startup community, you agree to be inclusive of any and all people and their ideas. You agree to act professionally, treat everyone with respect, and treat the event facilities with proper care. You agree that you are responsible for any accidents or damages that you cause. You also agree to not hold Startup Weekend, your local organizing team, or any of the event supporters liable for any loss, damage, injury, or any other unforeseeable incident.
