Past Events


Summit 2020

From November 13-15 2020, Queen’s Startup Summit hosted our first ever virtual summit. It was an innovative and fun-filled weekend with over 10+ organizations and 70+ delegates from across the country! The QSS team was so impressed by the dedication and hard work of the participating teams. Thank you to all of the students, speakers, mentors, and guests in attendance. Our first virtual summit could not have been such a success without our community’s support in bringing our summit to life!

Summit 2019

With the relaunch of our summit in 2019, we welcomed delegates from over 9 post-secondary institutions for a fast-paced and unforgettable 3-day event. Inviting speakers from companies such as Innovapost, National Bank of Canada, and Doblin (Deloitte), our attendees were able to gain knowledge and inspiration from our partners to apply in the 24-hour startup competition.

Packed with networking, learning, and design-thinking activities, the summit is an event you don’t want to miss!
