Participate in a student-centric gathering of individuals in the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation.
This is the fourth jointly hosted event by MacEwan University and the other post-secondary institutions in Edmonton to foster connections and collaborations between students going beyond the classroom. Leading into Startup Week, this full-day workshop serves as a catalyst for cross-institutional connectivity between student makers and builders. We are partnering with Agorize for a full-day innovation and design thinking workshop. Network and share your ideas and challenges with other students and entrepreneurs.
During the workshop, you will be introduced to design thinking and work with other students on a real-time company problem. You will have the opportunity to submit your solution to a national competition.
