Techstars Startup Weekend – Oakville is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you’ll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You’ll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.
At the end of this 54 hour weekend you get to showcase your MVP in front of our panel of judges. Winners will be announced and some great prizes to be won.
While not mandatory, we are excited to see solutions to challenges put forth by our sponsors:
