If you have an idea for a brand new company that’s been festering, you’re into business and events or looking to try something new, or you’re already in the midst of developing your startup, you’ll be excited to know that a huge, national event is coming to Brampton this weekend!
Innovation, creativity, competition, learning, and networking - these are all aspects of a startup that a new business owner must face. This weekend, you can head to Startup Weekend Peel Region, which is running at City Hall from Friday, September 29 until Sunday, October 1 this year.
It’s true, building a startup from the ground up can be frustrating and challenging, but at the end of the day, a new venture is just as rewarding, and then some.
The event promises quite a lineup of opportunities for attendees who can pitch a new business idea!
“In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started,” say event organizers.
Food, ideas, pitches, speakers, mentors, and coaches galore await at the Startup Weekend event.
To drop some names, MC and health and wellness advocate Jameelah Gamble, freelance business owner and Real Estate broker Amarpreet Kaur, and founder of Broadening Horizons Sara Singh will all be in attendance, speakers, judges, and coaches respectively.
So, whether or not you have an idea for a business, it might do you some good and get your brain juices flowing to attend and take a shot at pitching a new business idea this weekend.
If you do an outstanding job with your pitch, you could win a prize package worth over $2,000 and get to compete against other winners from other cities.
