Hello fellow Startup Weekenders! I'm far too tired to begin my post event wrap ups and I'm busy picking up the other pieces of my life and will be for the next couple of weeks. Well, I'm actually going away to NYC next week and don't expect I'll be doing too much thinking about Startup Weekend.
In the meantime, I do want to say thanks to everyone for making this such a great event and continuing to inspire me. Toronto's startup community continues to get better everyday and is full of energy, motivation and a creative and innovative spirit to do great things.
I wanted to share an email I received today from one of the many participants. This is why I put these events on!
Just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and your team for organizing Startup Weekend Toronto. It was truly a high quality, well organized, high-value event. Before attending SW Toronto, I was convinced that I needed to move to San Francisco or NY to benefit from the wonderful entrepreneurial communities there. Now I am confident that Toronto has great talent, activity and community support too... As I continue to work on building my business, I am now considering staying based in Toronto!
Thank you for such a wonderful experience!"
Some pictures from the event while you wait for more info from me over the coming weeks. The videos will take longer but we'll get them up.
Great job everyone!
