Ramp Up Weekend 4 - Presented by Innovate Manitoba


5K in CASH and more up for grabs!

Ramp Up Weekends pull together developers, designers, makers, and entrepreneurs to build minimum viable products (MVPs) in 55 Hours!

The event isn’t all about how many startups succeed or launch – It’s about building deep relationships among the attendees, learning, and taking the first steps towards entrepreneurship – In Manitoba!



Attendees will have 60 seconds to pitch each ideas. Ideas are not needed to attend a Ramp Up Weekend! After all ideas pitched, everyone votes their 3 favorite ideas. With the most interesting ideas gaining traction, teams begin to form into cross-functional groups (design, dev, business, etc). Rest of Friday evening is spent brainstorming and planning for MVP build Sat and Sun.


It’s all day building. Logos and websites created, product mocked up and built, customer validation happening – it’s an entrepreneurial tornado! Mentors float from team to team asking tough questions and helping teams survive the ‘pivots’ ahead.


Continued building and another round of mentorship. Pitch Prep sessions will be available for teams looking to scrub their pitches. After dinner, it’s time to pitch the judges. Teams will have 5 min to pitch, and 5min of Q&A. After the awards are handed out and the teams catch their breath, we hope to see these startups move on and launch right here in Winnipeg!
