Edmonton is full of awesome people, just like you. You might not know it yet, but there are lots of people in our city's startup and technology community building world-changing products and companies. There are so many different ways for you to connect with this community and Startup Edmonton is here to help.
We want to help you find your place in the startup community - whether that's building awesome projects at hackathons, meeting startup and scaling companies to work for, or accessing support to launch your own company.
Being a student involves juggling a lot of priorities, from assignments to making rent, and it's easy to forget about life beyond your post secondary experience. We offer lots of opportunities for you to make the most of your time as a student & prepare for whatever path is right for you when you wrap up school.
