Boast Capital Sponsors Startup Weekend Calgary on Feb 7 – 9, 2014

News, Uncategorised


Boast Capital is proud to sponsor Calgary Startup Weekend on Feb 7-9 at Mount Royal University. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 8,000 startups created across 1100 events in 478 cities around the world.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing and market validation resulting in a minimum viable product (MVP). The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders where the top three teams are awarded prizes in addition to bragging rights and media coverage.

Prizes Include:

  • Tickets and a demo table at The Cloud Factory in Banff on April 7 and 8th, 2014

  • Access to NEXT, a 5-week program to help pre-startups turn into full-fledged startups and prepare for an accelerator, investor, or early-stage launch

  • Access to Innovate Calgary’s Toolkit Series.

  • All-inclusive Management Leadership Retreat at The Banff Centre

  • 3-months free desk space at Assembly Coworking Space

  • Free Cloud Computing Resources for 1-year

Ticket price also includes coaching from successful entrepreneurs, all meals, and the most awesome time of your life!
