24 Hour Startup powered by Cultivator logo

Have an idea for the next big tech startup and looking for a way to test your idea out? Always wanted to see what the startup life was like, but was unsure of how to get involved?

Our 24 Hour Startup event connects the best and brightest entrepreneurs, developers, designers, makers and more to build a minimum viable product and see what being part of a startup is like, all within 24 hours.

The What

24 Hour Startup brings together the best and brightest entrepreneurs, developers, lead designers, and makers from across Saskatchewan, Canada, and North America, to pitch ideas, form teams, and build a minimum viable product (MVP) in 24 hours. Once the 24 hour clock runs out, teams will pitch their MVP to a panel of judges for a chance to win prizes!

The Who

This event is designed to connect the startup dream team of entrepreneurs, business professionals, developers and tech gurus, and design and marketing all-stars. 

As a participant, you’ll experience the rollercoaster of highs and lows that are part of everyday startup life, all in just 24 hours. As you work to build an innovative startup company, you’ll meet some of the world’s top mentors, entrepreneurs, and supporters who are ready to help you launch.
