BridgeCamp McGill Winter 2009

Page history last edited by Philippe Gauvin 13 years, 8 months ago


EDIT : The Title is wrong, this iw winter 2010. A new page has bee created to rectify.


For our first BridgeCamp on the McGill campus on Jan 21st, we are very lucky to welcome Frédéric Lalonde, serial hacker/entrepreneur whose former company NewTrade Technologies was acquired by Expedia in 2002. He has accepted to come to talk to McGill students about startup culture, startup ideas and his current project, openplaces.org with two of his developers.


It's a great opportunity for any student to learn from and ask questions to someone who has done it successfully and who's trying to repeat it again.


The event is scheduled for 17h30 on Jan 21st and the local confirmation should follow in a matter of minutes.
