Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

We're excited to bring you Startup Weekend Ottawa hosted by uOttawa! All are welcomed to join this 54-hour event to start up your ideas.

Our goal is to connect students across all faculties to encourage and promote entrepreneurship regardless of discipline of study while connecting these students to Ottawa's startup community. This time around, we have four categories in which participants can choose to compete in:

1) General 
2) Social Impact
3) Mobile Health
4) Makers

To find out more information about each of these categories and the event schedule, please visit:
