techstars Startup Weekend
Experience 54 hours of startup life and develop Sustainability-related solutions at Canada’s next online Techstars Startup Weekend!

About this Event

Come together online with entrepreneurs, developers, designers, business professionals, community members, industry experts, and students from across the country to help solve some of today’s toughest challenges.

From April 16-18th, 2021, we’ll be virtually hosting participants from across Canada and working together to identify key challenges, brainstorm, and build solutions relating to sustainability. Hear from industry experts, network with like-minded people, learn how to validate new business ideas, and pitch your final business plan to a panel of successful entrepreneurs and industry experts.


About Techstars Startup Weekend: a 54-hour online event designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.

Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday demos and presentations.

Participants create working startups during the event and have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centred around action, innovation, and education.

Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekend is the perfect environment in which to test your idea online and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.


Refund Policy: if you’re unable to attend, you may request a refund until 11:59 pm EDT April 15th, 2021. Please contact: canada@startupweekend.org
