We are doing some serious globetrotting this weekend, with Techstars gatherings in three countries, including two island nations. We'll be sending die cut stickers to Bermuda, Ireland and India, and we have a few stories for each of these stickers. Startup Weekends are all about entrepreneurship and community, and that's why we sponsor these events with our stickers.
Without further ado, we begin our journey.
Let's Head to the Caribbean
On the main island of Bermuda (did you know there are 181 in the entire territory?), Startup Weekend Bermuda has a classic rectangle die cut sticker on our premium white stock. They're using the Startup Weekend beaker design with orange, cyan and a pastel green that create a bright, tropical color treatment. Plus, there's a small bubble with the "i" for inspired business, which is the theme for the weekend. Thanks to all the coaches and mentors and the organizing team. With winter returning here at the home office in Colorado, the pink-and-blue sandy beaches of Bermuda sound mighty nice right now.
Off to the British Isles
On the third largest island in Europe, Startup Weekend Cork takes over Ireland's "rebel city" (they had some serious beef during the War of the Roses) for a weekend of inspiration and business building. They have a super fresh die-cut sticker with a custom shape that features a bunch of twists and turns. The centerpiece of this sticker is the bold, red type topped by the city skyline, and there's an event hashtag that brings home the message of where to connect to the masses. You can connect with #SWCork folks at the weekend on Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat.
To the Bay of Bengal
On India's Chennai, on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India, is the capital of the state of Tamil Nadu state, where Startup Weekend Chennai will be rocking a super-fun, high quality vector illustration of a Madras style building on their die cut sticker. This will be a fun sticker for any laptop because it's so visual and distinct to the local architecture. And check out the swag package that each Startup Weekend Chennai Team gets:
- $300 worth of Google Cloud Platform credits to build mobile and web apps.
- Free .co domain.
- Demo Pod for winning team and 2 complementary passes for first 3 team at August Fest
- @Works - Incubation call for top 5 teams.
- 1-Year Annual TiE Membership for the winning teams.
- Meetings with Mentors and Investors ( after the event ) for taking the prototyped product forward.
