Waterloo Residences acknowledges that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
From ideation to product development, Concept is where students can find the support they need to bring a concept to reality.
Concept is an experiential entrepreneurship and pre-incubator program designed by leading startup incubator, Velocity, and the University of Waterloo. We provide information and guidance for the entrepreneurially curious and have tailored pre-incubator programs for aspiring startup founders.
- Structured programs to guide students through the startup journey
- Entrepreneurship coaching from experienced professionals
- Grant funding for students looking to accelerate their projects
Throughout the year, Concept in Residence provides programming, support, coaching, and mentorship for students living in residence focused on entrepreneurship. Concept in Residence is supported by live-in upper-year students called Student Entrepreneurship Coordinators (SECs). SECs work to support entrepreneurship programs and events in residence, while also offering mentorship and coaching opportunities.
