Winnipeg iPhone Developer Meetup Message Board › Startup Weekend Winnipeg
Just wanted to pass along some information from Brad regarding the next Startup Weekend Ramp Up Manitoba is putting on November 9th - 11th at Red River Notre Dame. Looks to be another great opportunity for developers and entrepreneurs in Winnipeg.
Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form 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. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.
Some of our judges include Marshal Ring (CEO of the BCC incubator) and Keith Bilous (CEO of ICUC moderation).
This startup weekend is also part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, so Winnipeg is participating in the Global Startup Battle ( http://globalstartupbattle.org/ )
The winner of the Winnipeg event will be competing against winners of Startup Weekends from all over the world for CRAZY PRIZES like:
-VIP Trip to Rio De Janeiro for Global Entrepreneurship Congress.
-A FREE trip to San Francisco to tour Googleplex and meet with founders, mentors, and investors.
-$5,000 in-kind PR Launch Package for the winning SW team.
$5,000 worth of Design Services for the winning SW team.
$5,000 Incorporation & Legal Package.
