Whats in it for me?

  • Meet other startup enthusiasts such as designers, developers, marketing gurus & product developers
  • Build a startup or product in less than 54 hours
  • 6-7 meals and drinks (did somebody say beer?) provided
  • Prizes, swag, give-aways, oh my!
  • Fun, fun, fun! Just ask any of the attendees from last year’s event!

But I’m not a programmer, am I still welcome?

Startup Weekend isn’t just for developers! Teams, just like businesses need a diverse skill-set to succeed. On average, half of Startup Weekend participants have technical backgrounds, while the other possess a business mindset. Whether you’re primarily software developers, graphics designers or business people such as marketers – if you have great ideas you’re dying to share with the world, love learning and meeting new people, it’s not too late to sign up for Startup Weekend Okanagan and gain a real hands-on startup experience unlike any other.
