Startup Weekend Toronto returns on Nov. 21-23 with the Internet of Things Edition!

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event that brings together Toronto designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things and build real businesses. And this year we’ll be focusing on solving problems with Internet enabled “things”.

From the excitement of the Friday night pitches, to the intense anticipation of the announcement of winners on Sunday, with all the building, tinkering, designing, debating, validating and laughing in between, you don’t want to miss this Internet of Things edition of Startup Weekend Toronto.

Young or old, shy or bold – everyone is encouraged to step away from your regular gig for a weekend and join the fun. You might even create a business that will become your new gig!

Get your ticket before they sell out here.

Do you have an idea or problem to solve? Great! Grab a ticket and make a short pitch on Friday night. Excite enough participants and you’ll see your idea come to life by Sunday.

Did you recently learn to design, develop or make? Fantastic! Startup Weekend is the ideal place to practice your skills and meet lots of encouraging mentors. Who knows? Maybe you’ll connect with a mentor who will help you along your career path.

Do you like to build things? Awesome! Get your ticket now so that you’ll be able to tinker with fun maker stuff, like 3D printers, a fully stocked workshop, Arduinos, Raspberry Pi’s and more.

Would you like to meet like-minded creators, artists, hustlers and raising stars? Who wouldn’t! Startup Weekend is the ideal place to make new friends and connections, especially since many of the participants will be attending on their own and want to meet people like you!

Are you super competitive and want to help Toronto win the Global Entrepreneurship Battle for the 3rd year in a row? Super duper! Be one of the winning teams for Startup Weekend Toronto and you’ll go on to compete against teams worldwide for mind-blowing prizes.
