Do you have a problem to solve or an idea you’d like to bring to life but don't know where to start? Or who to start with? Or do you just want to learn how to build a startup and an entrepreneurial mindset? Startup Weekend is here to help! 

On May 17th, 18th and 25th 2024, the Careerin Tech Society is powering a Startup Weekend for anyone across Vancouver who is interested in building a startup in 2024. 

Learn how to think, work, and build like a startup in 54 thrilling hours. Techstars Startup Weekend Vancouver is an exciting and immersive foray into the world of startups.

​Over an action-packed three days, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders and sponsors to show you how to get more done faster -- and, maybe even start that business.

You can come with an idea (it should be something that isn’t already an up and running business) and an existing team, or just bring yourself! If you don’t have an idea that’s fine - you’ll hear pitches from people on Friday night and have the opportunity to join someone else and work on the idea they present. 

Technical skills, programming skills, or business skills are not a requirement. You will form teams with other participants with different skill sets.

Day 1 (May 17th Friday 6:30pm to 9pm) - Meet, pitch, and form teams. 

Day 2 (May 18th Saturday 9am to 9pm) - Build a minimum viable product and receive mentorship from local industry experts.

Day 3 (May 25th Saturaday 9am to 6pm)- Complete work, give final pitch presentations, network, and celebrate! 

Our goal with Startup Weekend Vancouver is to create an inclusive environment where passionate, driven, and like-minded people can come together to get things done — to learn, network, bridge the gap in entrepreneurship, expose potential, and spark innovative ideas for startup creation.
