EDL offering bootcamp for entrepreneurs
Economic Development Lethbridge has announced plans to launch a new 13-week bootcamp to give local entrepreneurs tools to help their business plans beginning next week.
The program is designed to help start-up entrepreneurs, or established members of the business community looking for a refresher, develop robust business plans in an interactive, classroomstyle setting.
“Since we launched the tecconnect+ED partnership last fall, we’ve learned that participants who are part of a continuing program, where they are committed and accountable, have a greater likelihood of sustainable success on their business development journey,” said Renae Barlow, EDL’s vice-president of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in a recent news release.
During the 13-week bootcamp, participants will learn from industry experts, build a relationship with a cohort and access tools to finish the program with an actionable business plan in place. While the program is designed to be continual, for those looking for a quick brushup on specific topics, single-session registration is also available.
The program is part of the tecconnect+ED series of programs created in partnership with the Regional Network of Southern Alberta (RINSA) with support from the Alberta Entrepreneurship Incubator program, a $10-million, two-year pilot project delivered through Alberta Innovates to fund entrepreneur development and mentoring support programs in existing or new incubator spaces across the province.
The bootcamp runs from Tuesday to Dec. 11 at the tecconnect centre for entrepreneurship and innovation. Visit
