March Update: Student Developer Conference, Accelerate AB and Work at Startup Edmonton
As we get ready to shift into spring (and for many of the members, grudgingly move our clocks forward), this March the Startup Edmonton team is focused on connecting our city's talented technical students with hiring startups and scaling companies. Over the past three months, we've had dozens of activities on campuses and at our space for students to hear from people working in companies, get to know friendly faces, and start making concrete plans for their education and post-graduation life.
If you're a high school or post-secondary student with technical proficiency in computer programming or IT, we would love to see you at Student DevCon 2017 on March 25th at the Shaw Conference Centre. It's an amazing day with hands-on workshops, inspiring keynotes and a job mixer with many of the great startup teams. For more information and to get your $35 ticket, visit studentdevcon.com.
I would really appreciate if you could help spread the word! If you know a student, or parents of a student, please pass along info on the conference! We're chatting about virtual reality, Android app development, web design, machine intelligence and so much more. It would be awesome to see even more students take advantage of this unique opportunity to connect with so many of their peers from across campuses.
Our foundational workshops are a great place to learn about entrepreneurship and meet like-minded people.
- Business Model 101 - Tuesday, March 14 at 5:30 PM in the program room. Learn the ins & outs of building a business model. Move from great idea to actionable plan.
- Product Tool Kit: Design Thinking - Thursday, March 23 at 5:00 PM in the program room. One of our most requested workshops, our Product Toolkit helps you build products and services your customers will love. We take a hands-on approach to learning human-centered design principles to move your ideas forward faster, with less wasted resources.
