Preflight I: Customer Validation

  • Startup Edmonton 10359 - 104 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 1B9 Canada (map)

Are you working on a product idea but find it challenging to know if you’re on the right path? Are you looking to jump-start your company growth and need to stress-test your plans? 

Preflight is our year-round program dedicated to supporting your efforts to build, launch, and grow a tech-enabled product. After working with hundreds of entrepreneurs, we know that hands-on support paired with practical resources is the best way to help. 

Programming: We’ve pulled together the best advice and tools from startup leaders around the world and compiled it into a series of sessions, peer groups, and workshops to keep you on the right track.

  • Join us one evening a week to focus your idea, build your product, and prepare to pitch to customers & investors.

Mentorship: Our approach to mentorship is simple - the advice you need, when you need it. Access mentorship hours from experienced founders, investors, and professionals from our network including the A100500 Startups, and the Canadian Digital Media Network.

  • 30 min meetings - you send three questions in advance and mentors come prepared to help.

Corporate Partners: Our friends in the corporate world want to see Edmonton startups succeed just as badly as we do! Access expert advice and deep discounts from our friends at Dentons (legal), PwC (finance), Hubspot (sales & marketing), 321 Sales Academy (B2B sales) and Marvel (prototyping).
