Startup Weekend Okanagan 2012 Video


It seems like just the other day that the Kelowna Innovation Centre was buzzing with energy that can only be created through an event like Startup Weekend. If you missed out on the event, the vibe could be described as a combination of sheer determination, creative solution-storming, manic fingers on keyboards, friendly competition and gracious collaboration.

But alas, here we are at the beginning of May, and that same energy has flowed out of the building, into the community and has created brand-spanking-new startups.

If you are yearning for a shot of that Startup Weekend spirit, we have just the thing for you. This amazing video documents the weekend beautifully and is guaranteed to bring about an outbreak of Startup Weekend fever!

At the same time, we are busy plotting and planning for #swokanagan 2.0 next Spring! If you are interested in becoming part of the organizing team, are curious about sponsorship, mentorship, or participation in general, please contact us!

Thanks so much to everyone that participated and to our sponsors: you made it all possible!

FYI, our next big tech gathering is less than a month away. “Spring into Summer” is happening on June 1st at a spectacular lakeshore venue in Kelowna – tickets now on sale
