Startup Weekend at UBC
UBC is excited to host the 54 hour frenzy once again!
Don't know what a Startup Weekend is? The process is fairly simple, individuals have the opportunity to pitch ideas to their peers. Based on the top ideas, teams are formed and they work together for the rest of the weekend. Everything from business model creation and market validation to coding and designing occurs for the next 54 hours. At the end of the weekend, the teams pitch to a panel of local entrepreneurial leaders.
