No talk. All action.
Startup Weekend PEI is all about learning about entrepreneurship through launching a business in just 54 hours. Participants pitch ideas, form teams, and receive wisdom from 20 smart and talented community members on how to build a business. The weekend ends with teams pitching their business to a panel of judges for the chance to win over $3000 worth of prizes. In addition, you are fed the whole weekend! It's an amazing event to learn, network and be inspired.
This year we're going "edition-less" and inviting all industries to join in on the action. Maybe you have an idea that's just sitting on the shelf waiting to be worked on. Maybe you've always liked the idea of working for yourself and want to see what it's like to start a company. Whatever the case, expect to put your skills to work and forge strong relationships with other like-minded people interested in entrepreneurship and growing in our community.
Startup Weekenders don’t just learn about entrepreneurship. They spend 54 dynamic and motivating hours building scalable companies that solve real world problems. And did we mention that registration includes 7 delicious meals featuring Prince Edward Island products?

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.
