What is the Startup Showdown?
The Startup Showdown is a 2-day business simulation tailored for students like you who have or who might not have prior entrepreneurship experience but have a passion for starting their own business someday.
This event is held simultaneously at Selkirk College in Castlegar, and College of the Rockies Cranbrook campus.
How does it work?
You can form teams of up to four people, or if you prefer, sign up individually, and we’ll help you find an awesome team. The goal is to provide a fantastic chance for collaboration across various programs.
Registration is free and a free lunch is provided both days! Plus, attendees have a chance to win over $1000 in cash and prizes!
College of the Rockies is excited to partner with Selkirk College and Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) to offer a region-wide Kootenay Youth Entrepreneurship Program! It is a multi‐faceted ongoing program that aims to introduce entrepreneurial skills to youth across the Kootenay Region, both at high school and college level, as well as being open to youth outside of educational institutions. This program aims to expose youth aged 16‐30 — free of charge — an introduction to the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and provide skills training and experiences to aid in skills and career development.
