Startup Weekend Prince George 2016 was held here at the Hubspace this fall and did we ever  have an incredible event!

We had developers, designers, and entrepreneurs from around Prince George (as well as a few senior students from Emily Carr University) come together, form teams, and launch a Startup all in one weekend.

Here are the awesome startups that came out of this event:
