Startup Weekend boasts notable alums like Mingly, Zaarly, Foodspotting, LaunchRock and Vizualize.me. With over 75 Startup Weekends happening across the globe between now and the beginning of December, there’s bound to be a weekend happening near you very soon.

Do you have a cool idea for a startup that leverages email data using Context.IO? If so, we want to hear about it! If we like it, we’ll pay for you and one teammate’s entry to Startup Weekend anywhere in the world (tickets are valued at $99/each)! We’re looking to sponsor up to 20 tickets in total. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the name of your teammate (if applicable), your idea and your city! We’ll email the winners every Friday.
PS – This just in: we’ll be sponsoring and attending Startup Weekend Toronto on November 18th – 20th. If you’re attending and have any ideas for apps built on email, let’s talk!
— UPDATE —
Due to an exciting response from our developer community (lots of great ideas sent in, thanks to everyone who submitted!) and the sheer amount of Startup Weekends happening around the world over the next few months, we’ve decided to extend this opportunity! We’ll keep on awarding tickets to Startup Weekends on a weekly basis (until we’ve given out all 20 tickets). So keep on sending them in! We’ll email the weekly winners every Friday.
