Event description

Description

To kick off Cooperathon in KW we'll provide snacks, an overview of how Cooperathon works, and time to pitch and form teams.

This evening event is the local kick-off of Cooperathon in Kitchener-Waterloo for Cooperathon participants. We want to give you a chance to hear about how Cooperathon will work, ask questions, meet other participants, and start to form your team. Note: you will have the option to pitch an idea to the group to help form your team.

This event is just to get you started. By the end of the night you don't need to have your team finalized or even know what you're working on yet.

Note: This event is reserved for Cooperathon participants.
