Event Details

Learn the Secrets to Launching a Successful Startup Company!


From uncovering financing options to capturing your market, Innovate Calgary's Innovator's Toolkit Series will arm innovators with a toolkit for business success.


Why choose this program?

The Toolkit series is comprised of six half day sessions, which provide the most effective best practices for company development. Due to the extraordinary value extracted from overall course content, take away materials, and ongoing mentoring via the Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR) Program, in reality, the benefits of the series outweigh the cost tenfold.


Register for the full series and receive a copy of the Startup Owner's Manual!


Session 1: "Market Discovery"

Learn to identify customers willing to pay for a solution while gaining valuable insight into what they demand. This session provides innovators with a better understanding of the process for bringing a tangible market connection to their innovation.


Session 2: "Business Model Design"

Learn about the integrated nature of a business model, and how to examine and refine the revenue model to support its delivery. This session demonstrates a method for identifying and designing the key elements needed to deliver value to customers.


Session 3: "Market Capture"

Set your offering apart in a meaningful way.  Not only will innovators learn to build an authentic brand that is connected to its customers, but they will also learn about market planning and how to get from concept to first sales to growth.


Session 4: "People & Leadership" 

Build ‘mental capital’ as a key part of your startup.  Using a leadership model that gets results, innovators will gain an understanding of advisory board creation, the value of networking, mentor groups, and how to attract the right people to an organization.  


Session 5: "Intellectual Property Strategy" 

Did you know if you file for a patent too early, you can limit your chances for success? Determine whether and when you need intellectual property protection. Innovate Calgary’s intellectual property experts provide answers while guiding innovators through the full breadth of intellectual property protection options for their companies and technologies.


Session 6: "Money & Milestones"

Discover the diversity of available financing options.  Learn from investors and fellow entrepreneurs about financing your opportunity, from seed to venture capital, and the pros and cons of each.  Innovators will learn the importance of managed growth, when and how to ‘bootstrap’ without giving away equity, banking options, and how the government can help with funding and grants.



Time Schedule
8:45am – 9:00am Breakfast
9:00am – 12:30pm Core Topic
12:30pm – 1:00pm Wrap Up & Networking


Space is limited! A maximum of two attendees per company is permitted. The second attendee must register separately. Register for one or more sessions, or the whole series.
