Looking for some technical talent to help make your idea a reality? Here are some options to get you started.
The Entrepreneurship Hatchery 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.
Another campus accelerator, The Dept. of Computer Science Innovation Lab, focuses on software development. Their summer program is open to everyone and they will match you 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.
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:
