University of Calgary Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking

The Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking at the University of Calgary is hosting several events during Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 12-18, 2018.

In the spirit of Global Entrepreneurship Week, we are hosting a Pitch Clinic sponsored by the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking’s GEW Engagement Fund supported by Schulich School of Engineering and facilitated by Tyler Massie of Market Grade to end the week with a bang!

Want to learn what makes a good business pitch and how to structure it? Learn the basics, build your pitch, meet with our mentors and practice your skills.

The best pitches by U of C students will be invited to the Big Ideas Lab taking place November 30th & December 1st for a chance at $2,000 and direct support from the Innovation Reactor partners to help them move their projects forward.

Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

Thanks to our Sponsors.
