Hosted by 150 Startups


42% of new businesses fail because there was no market need!

Join us the morning of Saturday, January 26th to learn how to NOT be part of the above statistic.

This half-day Entrepreneurship event is designed for aspiring entrepreneurs, startups and early-stage companies who can’t dedicate a whole day or a whole weekend to attend a business building event.

The sessions is ideal for those looking to:

  • Identify paying clients

  • Solve a problem people will pay to have solved

  • Create a compelling value proposition that gets them to buy

This event will leverage the momentum created when Ash Maurya (creator of the Lean Canvas and the Customer Forces Canvas) spent the first morning of the Innovation Rodeo educating almost 100 of Calgary’s advisors, mentors, investors and ecosystem supporters on how to scale a business and spent the afternoon teaching almost 150 early stage and aspiring entrepreneurs the secrets of building a product/service that people actually want.

An award-winning product development expert whose marketing skills and passion for launching startups that helps business create, and find markets for, innovative products and services.

An aspiring student entrepreneur who went from having an idea nobody wanted to winning a $100,000 pitch competition to now being a Lean Startups Advisor that is an expert in assumption testing.
