Startup Boot Camp


Bronfman Building Room 151, 1001 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 1G5, CA

The 8-hour Startup Boot Camp will teach you the first steps to launch your venture! Developers, designers and business people will all come together to gain insight on building both for-profit and social enterprise startups.

Part 1: A guest speaker from the Montreal Startup Community will share his experience and give you tips on the do’s and don’ts of entrepreneurship. Participants with no idea will spend the morning in the Inspiration Station to brainstorm and learn about ways to start a new venture. Participants with an idea will have the opportunity to Pitch and get feedback in front of judges (comprised of McGill Lean Startup Alumni, McGill X-1 Accelerator Alumni and Mentors).

Part 2: For the second part of the day, workshops around the Value Proposition, Customer Validation, Customer Segments, Channels and Building a Pitch will be offered to all participants. Mentors will come to spend time with the different teams and help them build their business canvases and slide deck. This will be complemented with an overview of the McGill Dobson Cup guidelines for those applying. The day will end with final pitches from the top teams!

Lunch and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
