Tecconnect+ED entrepreneur bootcamp boosts business

Sep 13, 2018
Lethbridge - This fall, Economic Development Lethbridge is launching a new, intensive 13-week bootcamp to give local entrepreneurs the tools to supercharge their business plans.

The program will help start-up entrepreneurs or established members of the business community looking for a refresher, develop robust business plans in an interactive, classroom-style setting.

In this 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 continuous, for those looking for a quick brush-up 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.

“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.

The bootcamp runs Sept. 18 to Dec. 11 at the Tecconnect centre for entrepreneurship and innovation. Registration for the full 13-week program is $200; individual sessions are $20. Visit to register or contact Mika Nakashima at for more information, including subsidy options.
