Wow!  What an amazing weekend.  On behalf of the organizing team, a very big thank you to all of the participants for their energy, enthusiasm, and passion to breathe life into new ideas.

You’ve inspired us!

Startup Weekend New Brunswick

 

We saw some really great pitches this afternoon.  The judges had their work cut out for them trying to narrow it down to just these top 3 team:

Champion: Robin Hood

Runner Up: PiloTalk

3rd Place: Eting

Prizes were generously donated by Clarity, Planet Hatch, Grant Thornton, Up Global and Startup Weekend NB.  I also wanted to take a moment to take our sponsors, our mentors, our judges, and our volunteers (check them all out at our event page). Without them, our weekend wouldn’t be possible!

But the competition doesn’t end there!  After all, this is Global Startup Battle.  Each team (not just the winners) have 48 hours to submit a 90 second video for one (or more) of the GSB tracks.

For more info on Global Startup Battle, get the GSB Attendee Pack

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to submit your GSB video.
You must submit by midnight on Tuesday November 18th.
I highly encourage every team to submit a video to at least one track.  You’ve got nothing to lose.

Welcome Aboard!

I would personally like to thank – and welcome – all of the first-time Startup Weekenders for joining the ever-growing startup ecosystem.  You’re plugged in now.  Continue to nurture the connections you’ve made with each other, with the mentors and organizers.  And give back to other’s when you can.  After all, we’re excited by cool ideas, and want to see more of them succeed.  Next time around, they might be helping you with your cool idea.  Hopefully the event is just the beginning of a long, creative road for you all.  Carry that spark forward, and grow your ideas to success!
