Startup Weekend Comes to Calgary Next Month

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where people curious about entrepreneurship come together to share ideas, build teams, create products, and launch startups. It is a huge community of entrepreneurs, with over 400 events in 100 countries around the world in 2012.

Next month, Startup Weekend goes down in Calgary. From February 8 to 10, Startup Weekend will take over the city and culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders where the top three teams will be awarded prizes in addition to bragging rights and media coverage.

Prizes include access to Innovate Calgary's Toolkit Series, an opportunity to pitch to Robert Herjavec, star of CBC’s “Dragon’s Den” and ABC’s “Shark Tank," at the Canadian Cloud Showdown on March 11; a leadership retreat at The Banff Centre; desk space for three months at AcceleratorYYC; tickets to AccelerateAB; and $1,000 worth of transaction credits on merchee to all participating teams to accept credit card payments and manage recurring subscriptions.
