Have you ever wondered what it's like to be part of a startup company?  

What if you could experience what it's like in just one weekend?


Keynote



 

Yuriy Blokhin of Kik Messenger


Kik Messenger is an inspiring Canadian startup success story, with over 1 million apps sold in its first 15 days of availability.  Yuriy was there from the beginning of Kik and is currently their Platform Evangelist. He's going to share with us the Kik Messenger story from that vantage point, including the challenges and the delimmas, and provide information about their development platforms.


Event Details 


Do you have a creative passion such as software development, music, fashion, film, art, or design?  Or do you enjoy talking to customers, marketing, and developing monetization strategies?  Maybe you should be part of a startup...


Leap into Startup Weekend is the ticket sale launch party for those interested in attending the next Startup Weekend Hamilton event!! 


Startup Weekend Hamilton is a new event where startups happen in a single weekend.  Ideas for startups are pitched on Friday night, teams form to work on the business model and build prototypes, and by Sunday night the teams are presenting their new startup in front of a panel of expert judges to select a winner.


If you're not sure how it all works that weekend you're not alone, organizers and veterans of last October's Startup Weekend event will be at Leap into Startup Weekend to explain what it's all about, how it works and what it's like to be a part of one.


Leap into Startup Weekend will kick off with a keynote by Yuriy Blokhin of Kik Messenger, followed by networking with snacks and coffees, and some special discount priced Startup Weekend tickets!  For those who stick around long enough there will be a DJ and some dancing at The Baltimore House later that night!


Startup Weekend Hamilton itself will be happening Friday April 27th to Sunday April 29th at Mohawk College.  Check out the website, or follow on FacebookTwitter, or LinkedIn.
