Description

Cape Breton's First Startup Weekend

Do you want to be one of over 15,000 entrepreneurs who will come together for hundreds of events during November 10-19, 2017 for Techstars Global Startup Weekend!

Techstars Global Startup Weekend Cape Breton (TGSW) connects entrepreneurs, organizing teams, and startup communities around the world. As an attendee, you will get access to exclusive resources to help prep for success at Techstars Startup Weekend and make connections with mentors and other startup teams. To help you keep growing after the event, the winning team of each event will receive helpful perks for building their startup as well as a showcase in our global channels.

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.
