Tampa Bay Startup Week 2017



We have stickers on Florida's Gulf Coast for the third Tampa Bay Startup Week, which is now in full swing through Friday with local events all around the Bay even into Pinellas County. This year they have a custom die cut sticker with event branding and a beach-theme Startup Weekend snow globe design in a bright, bold orange swatch.

We've been sponsoring this event since its inception (see the 2016 stickers and the 2015 stickers). This year close to five thousand participants will join over 80 events at venues in both Downtown Tampa and Downtown St. Petersburg. There are inspiring speakers and plenty of engaging sessions for budding entrepreneurs who want to network in the Tampa Bay area. We are always stoked to see our Techstars community get together.

You can follow the action on Twitter at @tbstartupweek and the hashtag.


Oulu Startup Week and Startup Weekend


Sponsored die cut stickers are heading to Finland for a Startup Weekend/Startup Week combo put on by our entrepreneurial friends in the city of Oulu. This city is in the country's central region right on the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia and is home to 198,804 inhabitants. Iy is the most populous city in Northern Finland and the fifth most populous city in the country.

Oulu Startup Week will be a seven-day celebration of the local entrepreneurship community. Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together for a week to build momentum of opportunities around Oulu’s one-of-a-kind entrepreneurial identity hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces we all know and love. They are rocking a rectangle-shaped die cut with a bright cyan background and the Startup Week globe design.

Startup Weekend Oulu is a 54-hour event where developers, designers and business development folks come together to form teams, validate their ideas, build new products and launch startups, all in one weekend.  It is a great opportunity to test startup ideas, meet potential co-founders, build the community in Oulu and launch your next startup. For this event, they chose a custom circle sticker with their event name and the Startup Weekend beaker brand on a sea-foam green.

Startup Weekend and Startup Week are Techstars events that are part of a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 3,000 past events in over 150 countries around the world. To date Techstars events have witnessed thousands of teams being created with the help of nearly 200,000 community members. The community of people is what brings us in and why we love sponsoring such inspiring events.

Startup Weekend Orange County, Gandhinagar & UBC (Vancouver) 2017


We have a trio of Startup Weekend events this weekend, with three different countries represented. They are all receiving our new die cut stickers, with Startup Weekend Orange County sporting a black oval design that features the Newport Beach ferris wheel while both Startup Weekend Gandhinagar and Startup Weekend UBC Vancouver have a rectangle design relying on a green color scheme that incorporates their respective city's skyline.

Startup Weekends, from our friends at Techstars, bring together entrepreneurs from across local communities and from around the world. Participants have the chance to build their own business and network with like-minded folks, and every Startup Weekend holds the potential for greatness.


Startup Weekend Kids Mexico City 2016


Starting today through Sunday, Startup Weekend Kids Mexico City 2016 will be bringing together kids to focus their ideas into a business, and in the process have the opportunity to realize their wildest plans into tangible objects. Parents can be involved, and there will be games and problem solving sessions of all kinds, including a LEGO visualization exercise. Safe to say, the program is packed for these kids, and they will have an awesome sticker sheet with six individual peel offs of fun characters to stick wherever they please (just ask mom and dad!).

How does it work?

Startup Kids weekend is an event of 19 hours over a weekend, providing an educational experience in a fun learning environment where children are free to create, experience and bring their ideas reality. Participants will form teams according to the project ideas they have chosen. Through workshops, lectures and mentoring for three days, they will be in contact with expert coaches to guide their project, Mentors will provide the tools needed so that the kids can experience the process of turning an idea into something real.

Who can participate in this startup Weekend kids?

All children from 8 to 12 years are invited to bring their ideas to take the next step, to make friends, and to experience fun. These organizers know that children have both the talent and the creative minds to discover, so they are creating an experience to connect kids with entrepreneurs to witness the positive impact that they can generate in our society. Plus, this team is convinced that entrepreneurship is the best way to promote the progress of society and human welfare. Startup Weekend is the entry point to the world's most important ventures, and Techstars is helping incubate entrepreneurs who will lead the future startups.

Thanks to the organizers and mentors for taking the time to arrange and attend this awesome community event (@alyssonfranklin, @solsona, @samarasalas, @stefica88, @erkluna, @wenyrmz, @huracaned, @XochOrtega).

Startup Week Chattanooga 2016


Startup Week Chatanooga

Startup Week Chattanooga (AKA #startupweekcha) is a celebration of Chattanooga’s entrepreneurial community. This multi-day experience will feature a number of community-led events that highlight our growing startup scene and inspire entrepreneurial thinking.

They have their square logo with the event name in bold and they break up the word Chattanooga into two lines and bold CHA as part of their local branding StartupCHA. It's good use of wordplay in branding, and the bright abstract color blocks behind help make the logo pop. Their logo stands out even more printed on white as custom stickers to hand out to attendees.

Participants include some of the most amazing startup founders, thought leaders, community supporters, investors, and technorati in town, all of whom make Chattanooga an incredible place to live, work, and play. They showcase the very best of Chattanooga – its can-do attitude, its innovative spirit, and above all its people.

The Startup Party


Now here's a novel thought: a new political movement focused on local, startup businesses. The Startup Party will have a presence at Denver Startup Week from September 12-16. They are going to be a part of Denver Startup Week, and they are tracking their stickers in the wild, which we love, of course. They have a goal of 50,000 members by 2020, and their current roster includes 300 members.

Their mission? Well, we'll let them talk.
With all the negativity around politics we believe it’s time to infuse the world with a little hope. We believe the flourishing startup movement is indicative of major economic change. It’s a move away from corporate, large, and impersonal and back to small, local, and personal.

They have a fun circle sticker that's modeled on campaign stickers using the red-white-and-blue, but in the shape of a bunny as opposed to an elephant or donkey--the traditional Republican/Democrat animal contest of most political stickers.

Follow along at their hashtag #TheStartupParty, check out this funny video for their platform (and more on their site), and scope some gear on the store page.
