The Concept $5K is a pitch competition that awards grant funding to student-led projects with startup potential. Apply with your innovative idea for a chance to compete in the Concept $5K Semi-Finals and pitch alongside fellow entrepreneurial UWaterloo Students. The top 10 teams as selected by our judges will advance to the Concept $5K Finals where four teams will take home $5K grants to help turn their concepts into reality.
This semester, Cocnept and UWaterloo's Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) are partnering to offer an additional $5K Grant for a student team tackling a climate change issue with an innovative solution! Be sure to apply with your project for the chance to win up to $10K in early-stage funding.
