735 Main Street
Join over 45,000 Startup Weekend alumni, all on a mission to change the world @StartupNB!
Startup Weekend NB believes entrepreneurship is the single greatest force advancing society and human welfare. We also believe empowering others is the best way to identify leaders, build communities, and inspire change.
We live life to the fullest. We take risks. We change the world. We are entrepreneurs. And we invite YOU to join the community @StartupNB!
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur and contribute to a more sustainable world, be part of Startup Weekend New Brunswick. Startup Weekend is happening in Moncton April 29 - May 1st at Venn.
Step outside of your comfort zone. Be Inspired. Solve a problem. Start something new. @StartupNB. Nov 18-20.
Friday November 18th

Coaches and Mentors
An entrepreneur himself, Dave helps early stage startups gain traction by providing coaching and support on how to validate market potential, grow their customer base, raise brand awareness, market their product, connect with financing and investment opportunities, and successfully enter later stage startup programs.”
An active mentor with Futurpreneur and as well as other organizations, Dave lends his experience in technology, customer discovery, lean methodology, online product marketing, strategy and communications.
I'm a self-taught coder that holds the "why" above the "how" and values inspiration over education. I believe that people are more than just their job and that we're on earth to help each other out with our gifts.
I'm living out my reason to be as co-founder/CTO at Ongozah Inc through product called Porpoise, a mobile app and dashboard used by companies and causes to let employees choose how to give back, in ways matter to them, and help influence their company's charitable giving and become a true pillar of their community.
Ongozah Inc. is a crowd-resourcing tool for community builders. Ongozah helps build and leverage "community" to allow businesses and projects to find the people, things and money they need to accomplish goals. We are changing the way projects and businesses start and operate by allowing people everywhere to get involved and contribute.
Alongside exists to help bring candidates and companies together in a meaningful way that fosters growth and potential for everyone. It's sad that online hiring has become so impersonal and demeaning. With our SaaS, we're bringing the human back into hiring (yep, that's possible). Because, let's face it - work is a huge part of our lives, it's time to love it.
As Marketing Manager, I oversee our brand and inbound marketing strategies. I also work hard to create high-quality content that people actually enjoy reading. I'm busy meeting others, researching, thinking, writing, obsessing, planning, etc. I love challenges and came into this role with little tech experience - now I even have a few coding tricks up my sleeve. 🚀
Before I came onboard with Alongside, I was home for a year raising my wonderful little boy. I thought maternity leave was like a whole year off of work,.. vacation! Woot! Man was I wrong. It was a super challenging, rewarding and life changing experience.
Before my mom days, I worked as a public relations consultant for Atlantic Canada's largest marketing and communication firm. I'm also a past jewelry saleswoman, paint/wallpaper sales associate, and barista (I make a mean cup of brew ☕️ ).
