Startup Weekend Coming to Calgary

by Sarah Blue | Startups

Calgary is finaly getting it's own Startup Weekend, happening April 29 to May 1.

What is Startup Weekend? It's an event that starts with idea pitches on Friday evening and ends with working iterations of startups on Sunday night. Bring your best idea and find a team to help you make it happen or bring your work hat and find an idea that you want to get started on. 

After pitches, attendees break into teams and spend the weekend brainstorming, planning, coding and building. The idea is to spend the weekend kick-starting a viable business, so be prepared for some intense moments. Some great businesses have started at Startup Weekends all over the world, as well as great friendships and community. Not all ideas tranform into world class business, but no matter what, the weekend provides valuable experience and insights into what goes into building a company. 

Tickets are $99 for the whole weekend ($49 if you have student id) and the event takes place at CoworkYYC - there really isn't a better location to host something like this. Go, collaborate, build.
