Reboot Startup Weekend is our flagship event running in November. It is open to all MBA students and Masters of Engineering students at UBC. 

Utilizing technologies developed at UBC science labs, teams will be presented with technological opportunities that have some IP rights but have not been commercialized. Over the course of the weekend, student teams consisting of up to 6 members will engage in business planning and prepare a presentation. Mentors help guide students along the way to develop their pitch for the judges.

At the end of the weekend, each team will pitch their business to a panel of industry professionals and an audience of peers and invited guests. The judging panel will use a detailed scoring rubric and collaborate to decide on the winning teams. Winners get bragging rights and a cash prize!
