Vernon, BC: it’s time for Startup Weekend!
Are you awesome? Do you live in the North Okanagan? Do you dig tech?
Then you need to be at Startup Weekend Okanagan, March 14, 2014!
For those who aren’t familiar with the event, Startup Weekend is a global movement of active entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of creating and launching successful startups. All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour 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.
Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. And leave very, very inspired.
Kazia Mullin has secured 8 fully sponsored spots for Vernon attendees: this includes event tickets, a place to crash and wash up (there are 2 Kelowna hotel rooms available for our team members), and all the event provided food you can handle available at no cost to the 8 members from Vernon.
