Do you have a business idea? Do you want to connect with future co-founders for your startup?
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where students, developers, marketers, finance professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs get together, share ideas, form teams and create startup companies. It takes place at the Barrie Campus Oct. 3 to 5.
Georgian College is co-sponsoring the event, along with Google, Microsoft DreamSpark, Mullun Law and The Creative Space.
The top team receives a $5,000 investment into their startup and tablets will be given away as door prizes. To sign up, visit barrie.startupweekend.org.
The college’s Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre is giving away up to 50 free tickets to Georgian students. Simply register and pay online, complete the three-day program and you may be reimbursed the registration cost the following Monday.
