Startup Weekend New Brunswick
March 20th, 2015

Startup Weekend comes to Fredericton this Spring Equinox (20-22 March 2015).
Spring thaw. Spring cleaning. Spring time is ripe for new beginnings. A time for change.

Maybe you’ve had a great business idea in the freezer for a while. Or maybe you’re thinking about a career change. If you’re drawn to the life of an entrepreneur, even if (or especially if) you are uncertain of the first steps, join us for Startup Weekend.

Startup weekend is 54-hour event where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch companies in this is no talk, all action event! Want more info on what Startup Weekend is all about, its format, and what you can expect?  Check out the About Startup Weekend and First-Timer FAQ pages.  There’s also a great Canadian-made video talking about Startup Weekend.

This is the last week for Early Bird pricing! Until March 1st, you can get your ticket to Startup Weekend for just $60 ($40 for students). This covers your food for the entire weekend (that’s six meals, folks!), gives you an opportunity to pitch your own business idea and form a team (or join forces with someone else’s idea), and gives you access to some of Fredericton’s entrepreneurial business leaders as your personal mentors.

If you’re still not sure about this whole Startup Weekend thing, we will be hosting Startup Weekend information sessions in Fredericton over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned to us on Twitter, Facebook and nb.up.co

Say goodbye to old man winter and let’s get stuff done!
