The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Club strives to facilitate further growth and passion of entrepreneurship in its members. To achieve this, the club provides necessary resources to those looking to start ventures, networking opportunities within the startup community, access to entrepreneurial UBC MBA alumni, mentorship opportunities, speakers, and connections to the strong Entrepreneurship team at UBC.
Reboot Startup Weekend
Reboot Startup Weekend is the club's flagship event running November 3rd- 5th, 2017. It is open to all MBA students and Masters of Engineering students at UBC.
Utilizing technologies developed at UBC science labs, teams will be presented with technological opportunities that have some IP rights but have not been commercialized. Over the course of the weekend, student teams consisting of up to 6 members will engage in business planning and prepare a presentation. Mentors help guide students along the way to develop their pitch for the judges. At the end of the weekend, each team will pitch their business to a panel of industry professionals and an audience of peers and invited guests. The judging panel will use a detailed scoring rubric and collaborate to decide on the winning teams. Winners get bragging rights and a cash prize!
