startup weekendEarly bird pricing for Startup Weekend expires tomorrow, (Friday, Jan 11th) so hurry up and grab your tickets today. If you're not sure what Startup Weekend is, it's a high-energy 54-hour event that brings together designers, hackers, hustlers and coders to launch startups at a rapid-fire pace. It's a space for ideas, a place to find teammates and get to know people who share a common thread, and to test product concepts. Best of all, it's got the resources you need to get a product launched all under one roof, and the work is done in the span of one short weekend.

The ticket price includes a seminar on Lean Startups, Business Model Design, Customer Development; coaching from local entrepreneurs and all meals. What's the kicker, you say? It's a lot of fun too.

Winning team gets the opportunity to pitch to Dragons Den and Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec at the Canadian Cloud showdown on March 11th (other media coverage and prizes included too).
