Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with? 

Techstars 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.

Techstars 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.

Watch the video below to see what you can expect, and if you’re feeling inspired click on the “Buy Ticket” button now!

Don’t wait any longer and join the Techstars Startup Weekend movement!

No talk, all action!

Facilitators


Vincent Gagnon
Gestionnaire de projet

Vincent est bien connu pour ses profondes convictions et son désir d'en apprendre un peu dans tous les domaines, que ce soit les technologies de pointe, les systèmes d'informations, l'actualité ou la politique... et rares sont ceux qui ne l'ont pas aidé à améliorer notre société à coups de grandes discussions toujours très animées! S'il n'est pas en train de penser à des façons pour rendre les choses plus efficaces et accessibles pour tous, il est certainement en train de s'informer sur ce qu'il se passe ailleurs dans le monde!
