Friday, November 30th through December 2nd, 2007
FBWB ( Facebook Weekend Beta ) is a combination of the Barcamp adhoc unconference and the StartupWeekend concept. It brings together entrepreneurs, Facebook developers, and designers to create products over a weekend. It’s a fun (and productive) way to spend a weekend and a great way to build an app, start a company, and meet talented people.
Anyone can participate, whether you already have a team and an idea or if you want to lend your talents and join a group. Each team is responsible for all decision making on how to they want to develop their idea/company or project.
FBWB is brought to you by Innovation Toronto, a not-for-profit organization promoting entrepreneurship in the GTA. To find out more join the FacebookWeekend Beta group on, you guessed it, Facebook.
When: Friday Nov 30 (evening kick-off), Saturday Dec 1, Sunday Dec 2
How to Prepare: Join the Facebook group (this means you are registered once you join) and post your ideas, or offer your services to join a team by posting on the discussion board. Once you’re part of a team try to meet and plan in advance, it’ll make the weekend that much more productive and you will be that much closer to being ready to bring your idea to the expert panel.
What to Bring: Yourselves, your laptop, some cash for food (we’re working on finding food sponsors).
