Learn how to launch a startup... over the course of a weekend!
Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.
Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the internet and coffee you can consume.

In my admittedly small amount of free time I'm a photographer, maker and adventure seeker.
My passion is making. That means I'm equally happy building a company, taking photos, building furniture, or creating dashboards in Tableau. I spend my time wondering how I can change the way people think about, or appreciate the world around them.
At DailyPay, I help identify new partners and play a strategic role in shaping our growth strategy. We've invented a financial technology solution for companies that meaningfully reduces turnover, increases engagement, and drives productivity, all at zero cost to the companies we work with. We've been fortunate enough to have been recognized by the New York Times, Women on Business and the San Jose Mercury News. We’ve served thousands of employees across a variety of industries including, but not limited to: restaurants, rideshare and delivery.
I am also to co-founder of 100 Men Who Give A Damn in Calgary. The goal of 100 Men is to support the amazing work our local charities do, in funds, exposure and awareness.
I have worked on 5 shipped titles that reached #1 on 7 sites including AOL, Yahoo and MSN.
I also designed key parts of multiple PC games that have been downloaded more then 20 million times since 2007.
Techstars Startup Weekend Calgary is 100% led by volunteer community leaders.
