For this event, you will learn the process of taking an idea to the next level by working on a business idea created by some of the most promising first-time entrepreneurs from Alberta's 26 colleges and universities.

This event is ideal for those looking to:

  • Learn why people buy new things

This is the kick-off weekend for the summer skills development program that is part of a province-wide student entrepreneurship initiative called 150 Startups. During the summer skills development program some of Alberta's most promising first-time entrepreneurs are given cash to improve their business ideas while preparing for a provincial pitch competition that last year awarded $30,000 in cash at the Innovation Rodeo.
