No Talk, All Action

Stay tuned for more information about our social themed Startup Weekend, November 28th-30th
 
This year, Startup Weekend at UBC is challenging Vancouverites to develop ideas that will have a measurable impact on major social challenges facing our community. Vancouver is quickly becoming a global leader in social and caused-based ventures and we want to give you the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills while tackling some challenging problems for all walks of life.
 
We are excited to announce partnerships with several major social impact organizations to develop a list of real world challenges to help inspire creativity and problem solving for Social Innovation Startup Weekend Participants. If your dream is to use technology, innovation and teamwork to make a difference, you can’t miss this unique edition of Startup Weekend at UBC.
 
Here's how it works:
 
On Friday, anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from the rest of the participants. You then get to form teams organically 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 resulting in a minimum viable product (MVP)... Don't know what that is? That's fine! Our facilitator will be there to help you along the way. Local entrepreneurs and business professionals will also be there to provide invaluable mentorship.
 
The weekend culminates with presentations in front of Vancouver's entrepreneurial leaders where the top three teams are awarded prizes in addition to bragging rights and media coverage.
