On Friday, participants, coaches, judges and volunteers will meet at Seneca College’s Markham campus to begin Startup Weekend. The room will be filled with people from across the Greater Toronto Area. We have been very lucky with the diverse skills of the participants each year! Whether you are a designer, marketer, developer, product manager or aspiring entrepreneur, you are going to love Startup Weekend!
If you are coming with an idea and you want to pitch it, Friday will be the day to outline your idea to everyone in the crowd. Teams will then be formed to take the idea and turn it into a startup! Most teams actively choose members that have different backgrounds in order to have a wide breadth of perspectives and skills to assist the group.
Once the teams are formed, everyone gets to work!
