Launch Dal has held twelve successful weekends to date. We plan to hold a Halifax weekend in early November 2017 and a follow-up weekend in mid- January 2018. Startup weekend is a global movement that brings entrepreneurially minded people together for an energized 54-hour weekend. Participants arrive on Friday afternoon, pitch ideas, form teams and become part of the world’s largest entrepreneurial community in 54 hours. Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities.
