Idea to Startup in One Weekend!

ICTAM presents: Ramp Up Weekend, a 55-hour entrepreneurship event where ideas meet the design, development and business talent needed to become Manitoba’s next great startups.

Your ticket covers entry, 7 meals plus snacks, and the opportunity to build a startup business in a single weekend!

Tickets available at http://rampupweekend.eventbrite.ca/

Idea Pitch

The event is a fast-paced and exciting weekend which starts off with an “open-mic” style pitch session.  Anyone with an idea has 60 seconds to pitch to the crowd.

Crowd-Sourced Team Building

After soaking in all the ideas, you’ll vote for your top 3 – and so will everyone else in attendance.  The most promising ideas form a following, and begin to shape into teams.  If your idea is gaining traction in the crowd, it’s time to start landing the talent you need to build your startup.  If your idea isn’t gathering steam, no worries!  Jump on any other idea you like!  It’s all about meeting new people, learning, and having some fun.

The Big Build

Idea selected, check.  Team assembled, double check.  You now have the rest of the weekend to build your Minimum Viable Product (MVP), presentation, and pitch.  It’s time to eat, sleep, [insert skill here – code/design/sell/validate] from Friday night to Sunday at 4pm.

Mentorship and Coaching

Whether you’re a Ramp Up Weekend newbie, or a cagey vet of the first two – you’ll be happy to know we have some amazing mentors on hand Saturday and Sunday to help you through.  They’ll ask tough questions, suggest validation methods, and provide some expert advice in many areas from legal concerns to funding ideas.

What if your half way into the weekend and find out nobody will but your thing-a-ma-jigger, or someone else is already doing it?  Some of the best ideas go through ‘The Pivot’.  It’s like a badge of honor to come out on the other side with a better idea, and it’s part of why the Ramp Up Weekends are so much fun. It’s also why we have mentors and coaches on hand to help!

The Pitch

The weekend will come to a conclusion with each team presenting their MVP’s with a 5 minute presentation and 5 minutes of Q&A.  A team of notable business professionals and entrepreneurs will judge each presentation and choose a winner.

The Spoils

The winning teams are awarded their prizes and (we hope) go on to build another successful Manitoba startup.

We're still adding to the prize pool, so these numbers and additional prizes may increase/appear!  Check back for more updates!
