150 Startups

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.
