Organizers of a “Start-Up Weekend” that will take place in Sarnia-Lambton later this month are expecting 60 participants from across the southwestern Ontario area and beyond.

The community organized event, initiated by members of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation group at Lambton College is being held under the auspices of Techstars, a group that has coordinated events globally.

The event is “powered by Google for Entrepreneurs” and comes together at 148 Front Street starting Friday, September 28 at 6 p.m. and running through Sunday, September 30 at 10 p.m.

Techstars Startup Weekend 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.

Organizers suggest bringing “lots of energy” to the weekend event, an opportunity for teams to pitch their own idea or listen to others. There will then be voting on the most interesting ideas, followed by the forming of teams with diverse skill sets.

Full details are available online, with links to Eventbrite and the purchase of tickets.
