How are you spending your weekends? If you are an entrepreneur, developer, designer, or just anyone with a unique idea or an interest in business, consider attending Startup Weekend Calgary beginning Friday, April 29. Cybera is holding a contest for one free registration to this event (see contest details below).
I had the pleasure of attending two Startup Weekends in Edmonton over the past year, and I was completely blown away by the quality of results a single weekend of hard work could produce.
Startup Weekend brings together people with a variety of technical or business skills to develop a startup business ' all in 54 hours. Beginning with the idea pitches Friday evening, teams are assembled and begin brainstorming that night. Over the next two days, the idea grows into a product, thanks to intense and collaborative work by all team members. As the weekend winds down Sunday evening, the teams present their prototypes to the entire group, at which point they receive feedback on how to improve, or move forward with, their startups.
Held at CoworkYYC at 150-1900 11 Street SE, Startup Weekend is a fantastic opportunity to connect with the talented and diverse pool of entrepreneurs and developers in Calgary.
Cybera supports entrepreneurs and innovative thinking and we look forward to sponsoring one lucky contestant to attend Startup Weekend Calgary. The contest to win this free registration runs until April 20 at 5:00 p.m. The winner will be selected by draw on April 21 and contacted via email.
