If you’re from Vancouver and you’ve been waiting for Startup Weekend to open to your city, then wait no longer, because registration is now open for the very first Startup Weekend Vancouver.

In an effort to bring its event all over the world, Startup Weekend is hopping to several countries, and it wouldn’t be right to have a Startup Weekend all the way to Israel, and not bring the event to its nearest neighboring country that is Canada. On October 8 until the 10th, Startup Weekend Vancouver will gather any interested individuals who are gunning towards having their own startup business. Whether you’re a PR agent, a marketer, an architect, lawyer, designer, or a jack of all trades, you’re welcome to join the event for fun-filled weekend.

Startup Weekend Vancouver will officially open around 5pm on Friday, when everyone will assemble, and ideas for products and startups will pour in. Saturday will be the official work day: teams will tweak and develop their ideas, products, and services. Sunday morning will give the teams a chance to cram and squeeze in a few fine-tunings to perfect their presentation on Sunday evening. Sunday pitch night will round up with announcement of winners, and hopefully, big prizes.

If Startup Weekend will be your idea of fun, then you’d better grab a ticket now, because slots are limited. Students are also welcome to join – with a special discount, of course! See you all there!
