Four, count 'em, four different countries and two continents with custom Startup Weekend sponsored event stickers. We'll start with our newest market, India, then head to Canada, Mexico and finish in the United States.Produced by Techstars (one of our event sponsorship partners), Startup Weekend is a 54-hour weekend event, during which groups of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, and presentation by Sunday evening.
This weekend is particularly special, as it's Global Startup Weekend! (GSW)
Global Startup Weekend brings together more than 15,000 entrepreneurs for over 200 events November 11-13 & 18-20. Attendees and winners will have access to exclusive resources from the global community to help them launch their startups.
India is up first, in the industrial hub of Neemrana, an ancient city lined with heritage sites in the country's central northern district. Startup Weekend Neemrana. They have a white sticker with the Startup Weekend bubble characters and a bright, green stripe with their event logo and Startup Weekend beaker branding.
Fashion Edition Montreal
Next we head to Montreal for Startup Weekend Fashion Edition. Why a special fashion version of Startup Weekend during Global Startup Weekend? Let's let the organizers tell us more:
Fashion in Montreal is part of the DNA of the city. Jostled by digital change, taking a turn to the design and marketing, the fashion industry in Montreal continues to transform. Whether the effects of e-commerce, social networks, the industry is once again upset by the digital era. Especially with the arrival of the fashion 2.0, the phenomenon is the result of a highly connected generation of entrepreneurs. It is as a result of fresh innovation and creativity that these entrepreneurs emerge in the industry.
Based on 3 pillars: fashion, business and technologies, Startup Weekend will be the moment to bring together entrepreneurs who have the same interests and values. From designers to programmers, participants will be at the forefront of a cutting edge field.
We like their custom shaped sticker design, that mixes modes with the Startup Weekend beaker, with an illustrated silhouette on the top and a script font to set aside their event branding. A purple and grey color treatment gives this sticker some pop.
Global Fashion Battle Mexico City
Our neighbors to the south in Mexico are also doing a fashion-themed event at Global Fashion Battle CDMX (CDMX, btw, is the acronym for Ciudad de Mexico). They printed up a rectangular sticker in a deep purple-blue and kept it simple with their city and event branding. We look forward to the their innovations.
We're in our home state of Colorado at Startup Weekend Colorado Springs. Their sticker has the city skyline in shadow as the dominant theme, with a background that matches the vermilion-hued rocks of the Garden of the Gods, the outdoor urban playground back-dropped by the soaring summit of Pikes Peak, America's favorite purple mountaintop.
We end in Florida for Startup Weekend Tampa and a fun custom shaped beaker sticker with Tampa's iconic lightning bolt branding and a bright blue-on-white sticker treatment.
We wish all of our startups and organizers the best of the luck this weekend, and we can't wait to see what you all build. Here's to Global Startup Weekend!
