Event description

Description

Join 150 like-minded Entrepreneurs, innovators, and problem solvers at Calgary's 3rd Annual Innovation Rodeo, where you'll learn from speakers and panellists about how to start a successful business, how to add new products or services to an existing business, and how to enter new markets.

The Innovation Rodeo awards over $35,000 in cash while connecting some of Alberta's most promising entrepreneurs, brightest innovators and best problem solvers so everyone can exchange ideas, build new skills, establish new relationships, and help each other create and commercialize new products and services.

Looking to start a new company, launch a new product or enter a new market, the Innovation Rodeo is the place to be.

The first 100 registrants receive a free copy of Ash Maurya's book Running Lean.

You do not need to attend all three of a day's events. Feel free to come for lunch and take in the Innovation Challenge or take in the Innovation Challenge and stay for the pitch competition, beverages, and networking.

Tickets start at just $25 and include lunch so come for one afternoon or come for them all.

The Innovation Rodeo is four afternoons of keynote speakers and panel discussions and where attendees solve Innovation Challenges to win daily cash prizes of $2,000.

At the end of each day, promising first-time entrepreneurs compete for $30,000 in cash via a series of regional pitch competitions that culminate with the provincial finals on Friday afternoon.

Proceeds from the Innovation Rodeo go towards 150 Startups which supports aspiring and first-time entrepreneurs in colleges and universities across Alberta.
