Recently, the City of Brampton hosted Startup Weekend to showcase new business ideas and getting feedback from experienced entrepreneurs.
Techstars Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where attendees learn how to build a company in a weekend. Since 2007, the event has taken place in over 150 countries with more than 200,000 alumni.
Participants take their product or business idea to the next level and join in a huge worldwide network of entrepreneurs.
For this year, a major highlight was when Nicole Verkindt, Founder of Offset Market Exchange (OMX) and the newest “Dragon” on CBC’s Dragon’s Den spoke about the importance of innovation on pitch night.
