This weekend, Startup Weekend Ottawa is set to take the capital by storm and Marketing Breakthroughs is thrilled to be along for the ride. The event, powered by Google, is a global, grassroots movement that gives budding entrepreneurs a real taste of what it takes to bring a startup to life. In a wild, 54 hour frenzy, teams will collaborate to build a business model or product in time for Sunday evening’s judging panel.

Startup Weekend Ottawa represents the core tenets of what Marketing Breakthroughs is all about: Persistence, collaboration, and a drive to achieve excellence. This year, MB will continue its sponsorship by awarding the winning team with a catered lunch at MB central and two hours of open-forum discussion with our awesome team of outstanding marketers, valued at $1,500. This award is a tribute to the hard work it takes to get a business from concept to fruition, and will help build the solid foundation needed to direct your startup’s success.

We are so into Startup Weekend Ottawa that we’re getting in on the ground level to see the action close-up! Follow our Facebook and Twitter for live coverage of the event. We’ll be there livetweeting so you won’t miss any of the action.

We wish all the participants good luck!
