Startup Weekend is returning to Hamilton this spring from April 27 to 29.
Hamilton’s Regional Innovation Centre (RIC) and Innovation Factory (iF) have teamed up once again with Software Hamilton to bring the international movement back to Canada's Steel City.
Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate and empower individuals, teams and communities. Attendees come to share ideas, form teams and launch startups.
The first Startup Weekend event in Hamilton last October drew a strong crowd of Hamilton designers, developers, business professionals, and students. This time around, Startup Weekend Hamilton has partnered with two other local innovation centres – Halton’s HalTech and Niagara’s nGen – as well as grassroots group Silicon Halton to bring in participants from nearby communities.
Startup Weekend Hamilton 2 will be hosted in the new Collaboratory space at Mohawk College. Tickets are $99 per person or $49 for students, which includes supplies, as well as meals, beverages, and snacks throughout the entire weekend. Register online.
