AN INTENSIVE TECHNOLOGY START UP PROGRAM FOR YOUNG MAKERS, ENTREPRENEURS & INNOVATORS
ZerotoStartup is an intensive 13 week program where youth discover their personal strengths, develop entrepreneurial skills, work with real world tools and technologies, and practice working in fast-paced creative teams.
In teams, participants will ideate, design and prototype a product that attempts to solve real problems using the latest technologies. Teams will then present their product at an end of program showcase in the style of a pitch to potential investors.
Participants will be exposed to business tools and processes used prolifically in startup communities – design thinking, persona marketing and business model canvasing – to build a physical technology product with a real user in mind. This product will be prototyped at our downtown makerspace using 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics, and where applicable, Internet of Things technology.
Teams are allocated based on personal strength surveys in order to distribute skills and personality types. There are no prerequisites for their level of technology or business know-how.
We have a pool of funding available for scholarship positions to participants who face financial barriers to accessing this program. Please indicate whether your enrolment is dependent on receiving a scholarship in the application form below.
