Hello! My name is Yvonne Pilon and I’m the President and CEO of WEtech Alliance, a proud partner and sponsors of this weekend’s WinHacks.
Here at WEtech want to see more tech companies start and scale in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent!
Supporting entrepreneurs as they build and grow tech and tech-enabled products & companies is at the heart of WEtech Alliance. We know that technology touches every aspect of our lives; and Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent is packed with bright, ambitious, and hard-working entrepreneurs and tech talent, just like you, that are tackling challenges every day with the incredible opportunities that technology brings.
As you embark of this 3-day hackathon, sometimes, just sometimes, these labor-intensive weekends produce something wonderful and entrepreneurial. And a new startup is born!
In fact, apps such as Carousell, GroupME, Docracy, Zaarly, EasyTaxi, Appetas are all hackathon ideas that turned into million-dollar startups.
If you’re looking for that million-dollar idea or how to get to that million-dollar idea, I encourage you all to take part in WEtech Alliance’s Director of Venture Services, Adam Castle, Ideation Workshop Saturday, March 27th online through Discord at 9am.
On behalf of our entire board and team, we look forward to see you, tech talent community across North America, build innovative, impactful models, visualizations, applications and other projects that create positive impact for businesses, people, and communities.
And remember, whether you want to be the next Steve Job or you’re looking for a tech job, WEtech is here to help support you.
