Friday Notes: Can’t wait for our first ever StartUpHamilton Event!
And here’s the skinny on what I and hundreds of others are going to be doing this whole weekend at the McMaster Innovation Park headquarters –
“Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup…”
Yup….I can’t wait! Big speakers for the Keynote include kitestring founders and more too!
