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. QSS is also going completely virtual! To learn more about our events, see below.

1. Company Events

Looking for inspiration on innovation? Want to network with cool businesses? Join us for our company events! Each event invites an innovative start-up or corporation to discuss topics of entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology, as well as tangible advice for aspiring student entrepreneurs, just like you! These events will also include a Q&A and networking period for participants to ask their most burning questions – it’s an event you don’t want to miss!

Keep an eye out on our Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages for more event information and sign-up.

2. Workshop Series

Our workshops are focused on developing the skills every entrepreneur/innovator will need in their career. For that reason, each workshop aims to teach participants a different technical or business skill through hands-on learning. If you are trying to develop your professional skillset, come out to our events!

3. 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. Furthermore, delegates are able to expand their professional network and find inspiration in the speakers, mentors, and judges who attend.

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