Launch your idea in 54 hours
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.

Paolo first showed his business prowess in 1997, when he took a five-man dental lab and transformed it into one of the largest dental lab operations in North America. Over a nine-year
period, Paolo and his team acquired and operated dozens of stand-alone laboratories, many of which generated north of 30% earnings and grew to make millions in revenue.
After the sale of the business to a private equity group in 2006, Paolo took Frontier Dental Laboratories under his wing. With large, established labs in both Canada and the United States, Paolo utilized Frontier Labs’ success to create evident software, an SAAS operating software that facilitates electronic payments, records management and e-commerce.
In just three years, evident has become the leading healthcare management software with over 15 million patients and 110,000 dental practices worldwide.
