Communitech is hosting Entrepreneur Week in Waterloo again this September. Entrepreneur Week 2006 featured a talk by Guy Kawasaki. This year they are using the “camp” moniker for a series of events including a presentation from Doug Hall of Eureka!Ranch and Ray Simonson of Software Innovation. It looks like a great week of events. I am scheduled to be at the Innovation Centre on September 25, 2007. Let me know if you want to visit the Innovation Centre, or if you’d like to do lunch, coffee, dinner, drinks when I’m in town.
Entrepreneur Week, September 28 to October 5, 2007, is North America’s biggest innovation festival dedicated to entrepreneurial spirit. Itâ€™s an invigorating week-long festival of events dedicated to celebrating the significant contributions of our greatest community asset â€“ our entrepreneurs!p
The â€œSecrets of the Bulletproof Startupâ€ theme is about demystifying the culture of the entrepreneur; disclosing powerful insider information to the venturous on how to create a winning startup, what it really takes to run your own startup, and creating a forum where experts can guide entrepreneurs in practical methods to meet success. More than 12 events and conferences, loads of speakers, 2 tradeshows, 50+ venture resources, a ton of partners and thousands of entrepreneurs make Entrepreneur Week a festival unlike any other.
There is the Impact Expo that provides a entrepreneur conference and tradeshow for students. It’s less technology entrepreneurship focused, but it should be an excellent day.
Impact Expo is Canada’s largest entrepreneurship event, hosting more than 2000 students, young entrepreneurs, and distinguished guests from the Kitchener-Waterloo region. This event celebrates entrepreneurship and leadership through a series of speaker events, workshops, case-studies, and a trade-show style exhibition. By connecting you with the business leaders of today, Impact strives to motivate and empower the nation’s next wave of leaders. It is an experience you don’t want to miss.
