Bootcamps & Entrepreneurship Workshops

  • Deloitte Entrepreneurship Bootcamp – October 13-15, 2017

    Ivey's Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship is excited to bring you the Deloitte Entrepreneurship Bootcamp led by Ash Singh, HBA '04. You may already be an entrepreneur, or you may be wondering if you have "it" in you. This bootcamp will pace you, hour-by-hour, through a syntax for the creation of a startup company out of a raw idea that you can pitch with confidence to qualified investors within 48 hours of a cold start.

    To register and for more information, please visit the registration page or contact Shanthal Perera at sperera@ivey.ca
  • Startup Weekend – September 29-1 October, 2017

    Techstars Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event that brings together London, Ontario designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. All Techstars Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

    To register and for more information, please visit the event page.
