[CANCELLED] In light of the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and with respect for the health and well-being of those in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event.


Present. Plan. Pitch.

Transform the world through innovation and entrepreneurship!

We need solutions for the most pressing problems of sustainable development in the world: clean water, affordable and clean energy, climate change, protection of natural territory, poverty, hunger, gender equality and more.

Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem of sustainable development you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

Saint Mary's startupweekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend, you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Saint Mary's startupweekend is a full weekend-long experience. Your ticket includes:

  • 6 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of people that want to start-up just like you!
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.

Tickets are $20.00
