AngelHack Bus to Boston! Join us March 2nd!

by Sarah-Jane on February 15, 2012

Interested in hopping on a bus to Boston on the weekend of March 2-4 for AngelHack and showing our American friends what the Montreal startup scene is made of?

Context.IO has been invited to fill a bus with at least 30 Montreal hackers/designers/product/biz dev/amazing people and bring them down to Boston for a one of the most prolific hackathons in North America.

WHAT IS ANGELHACK?

AngelHack brings together startup communities from around the country for a hackathon competition, judged by top Angel Investors, where participants build startup ideas. The only rule is all code must be fresh, so that everyone has a fair chance. Build your startup at AngelHack, win prizes, national recognition, and validation from Angel Investors on what they think of your ideas.

ANGELHACK 2.0

AngelHack 2 focuses on the startup communities in Boston and San Francisco and has over $75k in prizes to win. We estimate there to be over 600 participants for the March 3-4th event.

If you’re interested, your registration fee will be waived. There will be a small fee (between $20-$30) for the bus rental. Friday night accommodations will also be your responsibility, but Context.IO will work to get a great group deal at a hotel nearby. Keep in mind that Saturday night would be all hacking, so accommodations will only be required on Friday night. We’ll ride in Friday evening and take the bus back overnight on Sunday. Red eye FTW.

We need 30 hackers to be accepted to sponsor, so we’d love you all to come in big numbers.

This is an incredible opportunity for the Montreal Startup Scene. Being selected as a finalist or winner at this event would mean considerable press and visibility to some of the most high profile VCs in North America. Imagine Montreal took everyone by surprise with a win here? Let’s show them what we’re capable of!

Brainstorm on the bus, build in Boston, be totally awesome. This is not a weekend you should miss.

If you’re willing to commit, please submit your email address via the following form:

As soon as we have 30 hackers, we’ll confirm our participation and follow up with all the juicy details! As of now, we need 5 more to secure this opportunity!

We’ll try to sneak in a quick pub crawl around Boston on Friday night too :)
