Innovation Launchpad

By mmuise

Innovation Launchpad is Concordia University of Edmonton’s (CUE) flagship entrepreneurship education program that supports all CUE members (students, staff, faculty, and recent alumni) from every program to become founders and changemakers in their fields — starting a new company with a product or service that fits a market need.
This 6-week program supports individuals or startup teams through the startup process — from ideation to developing a solution for paying customers. Innovation Launchpad is a space to explore an idea, like a sandbox, and to provide design thinking and business perspectives to help you polish your idea into a viable, feasible and desirable company for you to lead.
The grand finale of the program is the Innovation Launchpad showcase, which is a pitch competition with a panel of judges where participants present their projects and compete for a variety of prizes.

Comments on Funding:

The program offers infrastructure and cash support to fund startup costs.
Those present at the Innovation Launchpad Showcase will win more prizes and connect with innovators.
