Startup Weekend

Frequently Asked Questions

On behalf of the entire .CO team, we congratulate you for taking part in a Startup Weekend event. You have taken the first step in bringing your idea to life and you only have 54 hours to do it! In order to make the next 54 hours a little easier for you, we are happy to provide a .CO web address to every participant of a Startup Weekend event, for registration during that event.

We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions below for your convenience. If your answer is not listed below, please tweet us @dotco or email and we will be happy to help you out.

Where can I redeem the offer?

You can redeem the offer at https://www.go.co/startupweekend using the promo code for your event.

Where can I find the promo code for my event?

The Startup Weekend Organizer or Facilitator at your event has the promo code for your event. In order to reduce abuse of this offer, we ask that you not publicly share the code outside of your event. While we'd love for you to tweet/post/yell/scream about how excited you are to have your .CO, we ask that you please not include the code itself in those communications.

Who is Porkbun? I see them listed on your page as your partner.

I attended a Startup Weekend in the past, can I redeem the offer?

What is the URL where I can login with my username/password?
