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!


Stop Procrastinating! Time to Build Your Startup!


Startup Weekend York Region
January 23rd, 2015

Startup Weekend is happening at Seneca College’s Markham Campus from January 23, 2015 to January 25, 2015. This is an amazing event to be part of if you are interested in connecting with your startup community in the Greater Toronto Area.

Startup Weekend helps the community by bringing participants, coaches and judges together to create startups, building long term connections and strengthening the community’s startup ecosystem.

The goal is to give participants the ability to work  as a group on an idea for the weekend and meet with potential co-founders.

We have an awesome group of coaches this year again! It is our priority to provide participants with coaches that have skills in diverse areas including finance, design, coding, accounting, law and consulting from the Greater Toronto Area.
