Post-it Brand From 3M And Startup Weekend Help Entrepreneurs Build Brilliant Ideas Together

Stocks in this article: MMM

To help accelerate ideas into reality, the Post-it® Brand from 3M is sponsoring Startup Weekend, a program through the non-profit UP Global that helps entrepreneurs launch their businesses in one weekend. As part of this sponsorship, Post-it Brand will provide products to approximately 300 Startup Weekend events throughout the United States. Through this partnership, the Post-it Brand will play a vital role in the idea-building and sharing processes among the events’ participants.

Post-it Products used to brainstorm at the Startup Weekend events include: Post-it Big Pads, Post-it Easel Pads, Post-it Full Adhesive Roll, and Post-it Super Sticky Notes. The Post-it Brand will also be filming a series of videos that will be featured on to help inspire others to turn their big ideas into reality.

“The Post-it Brand is excited to sponsor Startup Weekend and support their spirit of fostering creativity and innovation among the nation’s leading entrepreneurial minds,” said Jeff Hillins, global business director for Post-it Brand. “Through this sponsorship, we look forward to learning how Startup Weekend’s participants use Post-it Products to help them create bigger, better ideas together.”

Startup Weekend participants will also have the opportunity to submit entries to a photo contest, in which organizers and attendees can take inspiring photos of their team using Post-it Products for a chance to win a prize sponsored by Post-it Brand.

"There is a high correlation of the most successful teams and the quantity of ideas captured on the walls at Startup Weekend events,” said Marc Nager, CEO of UP Global. “Post-it Products are already such a natural fit for our community, and we're excited to support even more collaboration with 3M's help."
