Who we are

Since its’ conception in 2013, Queen’s Startup Summit’s goal has been to provide unique opportunities to undergraduates, enabling them to step into the world of entrepreneurship and innovation. In turn, we offer an array of engaging, thought-provoking and skill-building events so that students have access to the skills, knowledge, and network they need to find success.

Our Events

This year, we are offering more learning and skill-development opportunities with our new events. To learn more about our events, see below.

1. The Summit

The Summit is a fast-paced competition in which delegates compete in teams to develop ideas into real ventures, incorporating aspects of design, technology, and business. Through engaging speakers, activities, and mentorship provided by industry professionals, we give delegates the knowledge and access to expertise to bring those ideas to life. The summit allows delegates to expand their professional network and find inspiration in the speakers, mentors, and judges who attend. It’s the perfect opportunity for YOU!

Interested in competing? Stay tuned for delegate registration beginning in mid-October, 2021!

2. Innovator Weekend

This year QSS is launching our Innovator Weekend for students with entrepreneurial experience, and existing startups! Through a speaker’s panel of entrepreneurs with diverse industry experience, and the opportunity to select a mentor that best aligns with your goals, delegates will receive individualized guidance for their businesses. With a culminating pitch competition, this event provides the opportunity for students pursuing their own ventures to compete for a monetary prize, receive valuable one-on-one support, and to network with like minded entrepreneurs.

Keep an eye out for this inaugural event, launching Winter 2022!
