The momentum for Startup Weekend Calgary grows daily! While we’re still actively sponsorship recruitment phase. Would you or someone in your network like to consider sponsoring? Read on.

Our goal is to create an environment where passionate people can come together to get things done; to learn, network, bridge the gap between trades, expose potential and see actual results. We are proud to be a part of this type of innovative collaboration and we hope you will help us reach our goals by supporting this global movement on a local level.

Startup Weekend has held 2000+ events in 135+ countries around the world, and we are looking forward to making a big dent in Calgary. With the help of local supporters, we are planning to leverage our global reach to impact our local community.

A reminder that the event will be held on June 3-5, 2016 and we have confirmed a venue at McCarthy Tetrault LLP Offices – Suite 4000, 421 7 Ave SW. Our participant count is expected to be over 100. We have a few methods of sponsorship available, depending on what you’d like to do. As a starting point, take a look at our Sponsorship Package.
