On December 3, SAGE Canada will be hosting the annual Innovation Hack. The hackathon is designed to break into the minds of youth entrepreneurs and challenge them to generate innovative solutions that target existing social challenges. Through this experiential learning platform, students go experience the process of ideation, prototyping and validating ideas through the fundamental methodologies of entrepreneurship. Working within teams, students create lean business models for their solutions and go through the product design and conceptualization phases. Students pitch their solutions to a panel of judges by the end of the event. The top 3 teams will be awarded $150 each in prize money sponsored by Meridian Credit Union. The purpose of Innovation Hack is to promote out-of-the-box thinking, create unconventional yet effective and efficient paths to solving real world problems.
