Where Are You In Your Journey?

I am a student

Whether you’re a lifelong learner enrolled in a new academic program or a high school student at the beginning of your academic journey, we can help bring your ideas to life in a way that complements your learning journey. Our programs have helped grad students, undergraduates, and secondary students launch innovative products and businesses.

I have an idea

Every great business and innovation the world has seen started with an idea or a passion for fixing problems and making things better. But sometimes, people with ideas just don’t know where to start. Well, you’re in the right place. Our programs will walk you through how to develop your idea and unlock its potential for success.

I want to start

You know what your idea or potential business has to offer — maybe you even have future customers lined up. But you need a little help getting off the ground. From securing investments to crafting business and sales plans, we have programs that can help prototype and formalize your idea or plan, and experts who can guide you through the process.

I want to grow

You have an established business and presence in the market. Maybe you are a small business or a multinational company — either way, you know there are always more opportunities to innovate and grow. We have the expertise and networks to connect you with what you need to double down, to adapt, and to pivot, when it comes to your innovation, technology and strategic deal-making. 

Your impact as a partner

 Moving innovation forward is a team sport and Edmonton Unlimited invites partnerships across many different sectors, projects, and opportunities. From supporting our programs that help local innovators build their big ideas, to a wide range of sponsorship and engagement opportunities, there is a place for you.
