150 Startups is a multi-year Alberta-wide initiative designed to expand Alberta’s entrepreneurial capacity by having Alberta’s 26 colleges and universities collaborate so we all share ideas, develop resources, identify best practices and, annually, guide 150 post-secondary students to Ideate and take the initial steps towards becoming a first-time Entrepreneur.These first-time Entrepreneurs then expand Alberta’s Entrepreneurial capacity by going on to become role models, advisors, mentors, and angel investors.
Aspiring first-time Entrepreneurs, who are a student taking at least 3 courses at one of Alberta’s publicly funded post-secondary schools, are invited to participate in the landing page competition.The student with the highest overall ranking from the three different landing competition categories, from each publicly funded post-secondary school in Alberta, will be eligible to participate in both the 150 Startups Kick-Off Weekend and next summer’s Lean Startups Challenges.
