Start-Up Projects

Thank you to everyone who participated in Startup Projects!

Startup Projects gave students the chance to practice entrepreneurial thinking while giving back to the community.

The initiative paired students from different disciplines with non-profit organizations to complete a six-month project. With coaching from the Wilson Centre, student teams created timelines, budgets, operations and marketing plans, and determine funding for their projects.


The projects, which wrapped up in March 2013, were:

  • Fundraising Event for the Saskatchewan Cerebral Palsy Association (SCPA)
  • Business Plan & Website for the Saskatchewan Industrial Suppliers Association
  • Research & Develop a Northern Marketing Strategy for the Red Cross
  • Revive the Traders Luncheon for Junior Achievement

Start-Up Projects was a non-credit experiential learning opportunity available to all students at the University of Saskatchewan during the 2012/2013 school year.
