Campus Startups 101

A starting point for University of Toronto students looking for entrepreneurship opportunities and resources on campus

Find a partner

Looking for some partners to help make your idea a reality? Here are some options to get you started.

The Entrepreneurship Hatchery has a Build a Team tool, which you can use as a pre-established team or as an individual searching for a team to work with. The Hatcher also hosts a weekly Idea Market, where you can meet with other entrepreneurs. They also host an annual Accelerator Weekend pitch competition, where students are matched into teams.

Note: Depending on your idea and what stage you’re at, you will want to consider all available options before joining an accelerator. Here’s a list of all the accelerators on campus.

Coding clubs

Also, there are several coding clubs at U of T you might approach. I’m not sure if they take on outside projects or what their status is, but you can check these out to get started:
