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.

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.

We have a Startup Weekend in western India on the Kathiawar peninsula in the country’s Gujarat state. The folks at Startup Weekend Rajkot ordered up a custom die cut sticker from our brand spankin’ new die cut machine. Just look all of these beautiful colors serving as a backdrop for a simple vector outline of Ganhdi strolling with his walking stick, who was born and raised in a Hindu merchant family in coastal Gujarat. Fitting, then, that’s he’s on this bold, memorable custom shaped sticker for an innovation-themed event.

Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. The motto: No talk. All action.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Startup Weekend Jamundi 2016

Just outside of Santiago de Cali, one of Colombia’s largest cities and the only major Colombian city with access to the Pacific Coast, is the town of Jaramundi, which is developing along with Cali (that’s what the locals call it) as one of the country’s growing economies. So it’s no surprise that this weekend we are sending startup sticker love to Startup Weekend Jamundi, a town that rests at the foot of the Farallones de Cali, a range of mountains in Colombia’s West Andes. They have a super fun custom kiss cut sticker featuring bright colors, a unique drop shadow on the sticker itself and of course the Startup Weekend branding with a little local flare. We really dig the paper airplane motif, because since it’s a Startup Weekend, the ideas will be flying (and we hope landing!). This community has brought together a sweet list of speakers and a full schedule, and there will be plenty of ideas and developing and pitching and mentoring going on all weekend. After all, it’s all about: Pitch. Build. Launch.

Startup Weekend Guadalajara

Startup-Weekend-Guadalajara-Sponsored-Sticker-2016

This weekend we have a Startup Weekend in Mexico. Our friends at Startup Weekend Guadalajara really brought it with a colorful custom sticker sheet that 13 different peel offs, including eight different Startup Weekend “lab people” designs. These are the types of whimsical, yet refined, designs that work so well on sticker sheets. They also have an event logo with a soldier wearing a helmet, plus a few quotes and sponsor logos. A well-rounded, well-thought-out set of stickers.

Startup Weekends are “all action and no talk,” where participants have a learning experience and total immersion for 54 hours where they can start a new business or incubate a new product idea.

60-second pitches result in the formation of small teams around the best concepts. 54 hours are spent focusing on customer and product development, validating ideas and building prototypes with the help of experienced mentors. Finally, each team has the chance to present their results and receive feedback from a panel of industry experts.

Before we go, a big thanks to all of the other sponsors, the organizers, the mentors and the judges. These weekends are always a community effort, and when the village gets together, magic can truly happen.
