Engaging students and developing entrepreneurial talent early is key. We need to train a new generation of founders who will create more investable companies and impact deal flow in our community.
We know the talent exists, but there exists a gap in our community where ideas are transformed into products and startups. In fact, many founders never take the first step from idea to startup.
Students to Startups Initiative is focused on inspiring students to become startup founders or join high growth startups locally.
It's a cross-campus, city-wide initiative led by the AcceleratorYYC Student Advisory Council, a group of students/youth ages 16-29 working to build a more cohesive community of champions among entrepreneurial minded students/youth across Calgary.

Our main way of communicating will be through the Meetup Group as we can schedule meetings, take polls, discussion boards and connect!
