Adeline - Founder of Pigeon Patchwork

In Adeline's second year with Startup Skool, she launched Pigeon Patchwork - A clothing company that takes old clothing and recreates new articles of clothing and accessory items such as bags, pouches, purses, shirts, and aprons. By patching old pieces together, Adeline is preventing unworn clothes ending up in the landfill and creating timeless fashion accessories for the modern eco-friendly consumer. They also help create awareness for people to recognize the importance of stopping child labour by sharing stories of child labour and donating a percentage of profits to these causes. Learn more


Alex from Innovation Camp

Last year Alex joined our innovation Camp to learn about entrepreneurship first hand! He launched Terraria, a business that sold custom terrariums and cactus to adults looking to spruce up their homes. On his first day of sales he sold all 15 of his terrariums in under 10 minutes! Just a few weeks ago we learned about Alex's next venture, financial literacy tool kits for kids.

"Thank you always for giving Alex an opportunity to learn more about business through your amazing camp! I believe it is his favourite camp to date. He keeps asking when it will start again. He has been asking questions about businesses which have closed down and why their revenue could not cover all their expenses. He has also asked me questions about companies buying another company and what happens (I explained that is called 'mergers and acquisitions'). We have had discussions about the importance of the net profit/loss figures for a company as well as why we cannot tell the financial health of a company just from looking at their revenue. He also had a business-related question while eating a bag of Munchies, he asked me if Munchies had to get 'permission' to use the other branded chips to be put in the Munchies bag. I asked him to do some research and he found out that all chip brands in the Munchies bag were all owned by the parent company Frito-Lay. He found it so interesting!! He enjoys finding out more about companies. He's now working on creating a financial literacy kit for kids. He wants to teach kids about money just like you did for him. Thank you!" - Christina, parent Vancouver Innovation Camp
