Congratulations to UBC Accelerator Program graduates, Real World Analytics, winners of the UBC Startup Weekend, which took place Nov 15-17. This valuable event attracted a diverse range of young innovators who came to learn and share ideas over the course of 3 packed days. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday, teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes to a panel of local entrepreneurial leaders who provide valuable feedback and judge the winning teams.

Stay tuned for future Startup Weekends in the Vancouver area!
