You know when you get that feeling that you really want to just “make” something? Start from nothing and be a part of something real, something big and potentially huge?
What do you normally do on a weekend? Sleep in? Make bacon? Log hours of video games? Maybe it’s time to shake it up a bit and see what you’re really made of! (You can still make that bacon if you want.)
This weekend we dedicate this blog post and our Facebook banner to Ottawa Startup Weekend 2. Startup Weekend is a 54 hour project-slash-contest where people come together pitch, plan, build and even launch a brand new business. Ottawa Startup Weekend 2 takes place in Ottawa November 9-11 – mark that in your calendar now. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet some amazing people, learn about yourself and take part in something real, awesome and potentially huge! When I saw the videos and pitches from the first Startup Weekend I was blown away by the ideas and the energy. When I saw the sites they built, answered the surveys they sent for market research and followed their brand-spankin’ new Facebook pages and Twitter feeds I was in awe – I was a part of something just being created. It was such a cool process to watch!
If you are an entrepreneurial coder / developer / engineer / designer / UX / UI / illustrator / business development / sales / product manager / project manager / marketing or PR pro there is a spot for you at Startup Weekend and a team that needs you. Check it out, pass it on, follow along starting November 9 and be a part of something real.
Cool stuff is always happening in Ottawa – be a part of it!
