Student Summer Accelerator - Recap

Student Summer Accelerator - Recap

With fall just around the corner, it's time for us to say goodbye to the great teams we welcomed to campus for the Student Summer Accelerator Program. Teams of four joined us for 14 weeks of intensive programming focused on developing their tech-enabled products. The students went through the Preflight series, participated in weekly mentorship sessions and pitched their companies at a practice demo day. 

We look forward to working with students this year! Stay tuned to starupedmonton.com/students for updates. 

We sat down with Carl Charest, Program Coordinator, to chat about his experience with the students this summer. 

Creative Collisions

Creative Collisions

Startup Edmonton is a place for creative collisions. Recently, we welcomed artist Brandon Bilhete to the space to work on a new chalk wall mural for the social space. After nearly a year to enjoy Jose Macasinag's Startup City illustration, Brandon was tasked with the massive theme of technology through the ages. We think he did a fantastic job!

The Open Hardware Meetup, hosted by Neil Lamoureux and Graham Nelson, meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM. 

The Open Hardware Meetup is a place where all kinds of people can share an interest in the intersection of hardware, software, connectivity, and user experience. When combined, these elements create a new art which blends the lines of beauty and technology.

Open Hardware is hosting Arduino for Makers on May 2, a hands-on workshop for beginners. 

We had a chance to chat with Neil about the meetup and his passion for Open Hardware.
