Community Shout Out: Start-Up Weekend, March 14-16

This is a special post for UBCO students who are interested in getting involved in the community and in honing their business skills, meeting potential mentors, and learning the start-up ropes. One of 400 international Start-up Weekends, the Kelowna weekend is a chance for local entrepreneurs to work with designers, developers, and students to take an idea from an initial pitch to a sustainable business in 54 hours. Best of all there is a discount for students. Whether you have a business idea or not, this event is a great way to learn about the development cycle, especially if you want to get your feet wet before you graduate.
