Join Vancouver’s finest developers, marketers, designers, product managers and startup enthusiasts in a 54 hour whirlwind weekend taking simple pitches to full fledged startups from March 14 to 16.

Registration is now open until Wednesday, March 12 at midnight! Students can use the promo code “STUDENT” to get a special ticket price of $50.

Here’s how it works:
On Friday, anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from the rest of the participants. You then get to form teams organically 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 resulting in a minimum viable product (MVP)… Don’t know what that is? That’s fine! Our facilitator will be there to help you along the way. Local entrepreneurs and business professionals will also be there to provide invaluable coaching.

The weekend culminates with presentations in front of Vancouver’s entrepreneurial leaders where the top three teams receive feedback and are awarded with great prizes!

Now what’s stopping you? Register today!
