Spring 2020

Virtual Concept

With the closing of the University of Waterloo campus for Spring 2020 semester, our programming has gone completely virtual! Although we can’t meet in person, we will still offer the same level of support for entrepreneurial students, with some new twists and changes.


Our virtual spring programming will consist of:

Attend our virtual intro sessions to learn about entrepreneurship, get a glimpse into the world of startups, build new skills, and engage with the Concept community!
