Startup Coffee | Caffeine & Entrepreneurial Conversations
Mar 6 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Discuss new business ideas with experienced founders and mentors at Startup Coffee – a monthly meeting of students, entrepreneurs, and community members. Get feedback on the business idea you’ve been thinking about, ask questions, meet other student entrepreneurs, and get connected.

You don’t need an idea to participate. Hear what others are working on and how you can get involved in the entrepreneurial community on campus.

This month we are headed to Common Grounds in the Campus Activity Center! Look for the Startup Coffee banner.

RSVP and we will buy you your first cup of joe!

The Generator supports students, faculty, alumni, and staff with mentorship, workspace, and events. Located in the basement of the House of Learning Building – just take the elevators down to the basement!


About Startup Basics

We know that entrepreneurship can often seem daunting or be intimidating to those first starting out. The Kamloops Innovation Startup Basics Series helps minimize this fear by providing entrepreneurs and startup-curious with the tools they need to get started. Through the Startup Basics Series, Kamloops Innovation provides mentorship, resources, and tools to help entrepreneurs structure and curate their ideas while in the first stages of their startup. Entrepreneurs who participate in the Startup Basics Series often go on to graduate into our more extensive programs like the Market Validation Training and Venture Acceleration Program, and onto starting their own companies creating significant benefits for the community.

The Startup Basics Series is a relaxed classroom style program split into distinct topics that bring entrepreneurs and startup-curious through the basics of forming a business plan and documenting their ideas. Sessions are presented by Kamloops Innovation staff, EIR, mentors, partners, and alumni. Each session is designed to educate on the fundamentals needed to transform an idea into a startup; passion into a paycheck.
