Startup Weekend NB - The Silver Economy
Friday, April 28 - 30, 2017
Friday, April 28 - 30, 2017
Event starts at 5:30 pm
735 Main Street
Bringing together change makers, entrepreneurs, and community leaders to bring solutions to the #SilverEconomy.
We welcome designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things.
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!
What's the twist?
Startup Weekend NB: The Silver Economy means we will be focusing the ideas we select on creating opportunities in the aging population industry. 16.5% of the New Brunswick population is at least 65 years or older - we are the province that is getting older the fastest. And our aging population affects far more than just our health sector, with opportunities spread across many parts of our communities including systems & policy, financial responsibility, research & innovation, and technology enablement. Which is why we thought Startup Weekend NB was the perfect catalyst for hacking the #SilverEconomy and bring together changemakers, entrepreneurs, and community leaders to develop solutions by exploring and discussing trends, ideas, products, services, businesses or simply new ways of thinking which our multigenerational communities can benefit from.
Whether you are interested in the aging population or not, the ultimate objective of the event is to empower you with a powerful process for taking any idea, age-related or not, from concept to creation!
If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur and contribute to a more sustainable world, be part of Startup Weekend New Brunswick. Startup Weekend is happening in Moncton April 28 - 30 at Venn.
Step outside of your comfort zone. Be Inspired. Solve a problem. Start something new. We take risks. We change the world. We are entrepreneurs. And we invite YOU to join the community @StartupNB!
