Join us for the inaugural “Startup Festival Week NB” - a week-long celebration of startup entrepreneurs throughout NB.

The purpose behind the festival is to showcase the startup activity that is happening throughout the province - we have a vibrant and growing startup ecosystem and this is a great time to show it to our citizens.

Many of our 10 startup communities throughout NB will be hosting events throughout the week in their communities for entrepreneurs, entrepreneur supporters, and the general public - pitch competitions, workshops, open houses, and more.

The festival week wraps up with 2 event-filled days in Fredericton (June 10-11), where it will host the province-wide Startup NB Community Pitch-off finals, the Canadian Export Challenge regional pitch competition and workshop, and the grand finale: The Startup Canada Awards - Atlantic on June 11.

Check out our schedule of events below to see what's happening in your community.  Mark your calendars - this will be a week of activity you won’t want to miss!
