FAQ's

How does team formation work?

At Startup Sprint, teams are formed through the team formation period on Friday night. You can pitch your idea during open mic, join other teams, or come with a team already in mind. Just make sure your team is finalized and registered with organizers by the time you leave on Friday! While there are no hard requirements on team size, we recommend a team of 2-4 people.

Can I bring an existing idea?

We all have ideas -- we're sure you have some right now! We encourage you to brainstorm and ideate with your team on site, but it's also okay to bring in an existing idea you've been thinking about, as long as you haven't begun prototyping.

Do I need to be technical?

Nope! Startup Sprint is open to hackers & hustlers of all backgrounds. If you do want to write code during the weekend, we definitely encourage it. That said, if you've never written a line of HTML, we still encourage you to participate and get your hands dirty with some accessible prototyping tools!

Will there be food?

You bet! We will provide plenty of food, snacks and caffeine. We will do our best to account for a variety of dietary restrictions, however if you have unique dietary concerns please email us: info@nextcanada.com.

Is this an overnight event?

No. Everyone will depart on Friday night by 11pm, and get started again at 8am on Saturday.

How does prizing work?

The top three teams as determined by our judges will receive a combination of cash and in-kind prizes. The winning team will also take home (drumroll, please...) an advance spot to Next 36 National Selection Weekend 2019!

Please note: This only applies to participants who are eligible for the Next 36 program who have also completed a full Next 36 2020 application. For more on Next 36 eligibility requirements, please refer to our website.
