e@UBCO Startup Sprint in partnership with WeBC

February 2 @ 4:30 pm - February 4 @ 4:00 pm

WeBC is excited to partner with e@UBCO for Startup Sprint in Kelowna!

The concept is simple: start a company over a weekend by solving some of society’s biggest challenges.

Startup Sprint is an immersive weekend of learning-by-doing that teaches you how to go from identifying a problem to building a solution fit to form a new business.

If you’re thinking about starting a business, this is your chance to learn and practice the skills you need to define a problem, generate solutions, do market research, identify your client profile, generate prototypes and pitch the business. Working on teams, you’ll receive tools, learning, and mentorship in an entrepreneurship laboratory.

Do you need your own startup or business idea? No! This is an excellent opportunity to learn in a supportive environment so you can develop the startup skills you can later apply to your own business.

The program is FREE and open to anyone in the community who is seeking to build their entrepreneurial skillset!

This is a full weekend with meals provided—apply by Monday, January 22 to secure your spot.

Application deadline is Monday, January 22.
