Description

VENUE CHANGE DUE TO COLLEGE STRIKE - Now Holly Recreation Centre

Calling All TEENS!

This is your chance to learn how to make an idea an opportunity and win prizes along the way!

Your MISSION, if you choose to accept it, will be to create an impact at a local, regional or global level.

As your team builds your startup, you learn the basics of launching a project and understand why your product or service matters. You will also have the support of coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs, co-founders, financial specialists and more to help you take your mission to the next level.

Learning sessions preceding each work day will provide an overview on various tools and ideas (including how to identify end user needs) to benefit attendees as they design the ultimate pitch. Attendees will be engaged in an active learning process throughout the event.

Get ready to change the world!

I have an idea but how do I create a team? This is one of the first questions we hear. Teams are often formed around an idea or concept that interests the team member. Some teams also form from friendships or schools. These latter teams are ok but discouraged as we want you to connect with other people in a similar frame of mind. Each team needs a leader, a researcher, a designer, a web developer and more depending on the type of project. Teams of friends may have similar skills. Teams coming together based on an idea tend to have more diverse skillsets.

What if I don’t have an idea?

That’s ok. You do not need an idea to participate in Impact Cup. The first day of the event we will go through the idea process and then give everyone time to think about an idea that interests them. Then, attendees will have an opportunity to post ideas around the room and allow other attendees to join them to form a team. Still not sure? Our mentors can help you with a few ideas to work on as well. You can pivot or completely change your idea at any time but remember there are a set amount of hours for work - a change might mean going through the whole process in under 24 hours!
