The Start-up Garage pre-aplication deadline is Februry 15, 2011

The Start-up Garage provides students at Ottawa post secondary institutions with an opportunity to start or grow their own business. It is not a business case competition; it is a program where participants are expected to deliver results. You tell us what you are going to to, and we provide the resources so that you can do it. Application forms are available on request to Monica at

Up to 3 team members of a company can be funded through the Start-up Garage, although the team may include additional members. Applicants are strongly encouraged to build a team with diverse expertise including a member with business/marketing/management background in order to bring complementary skills to the project, and increase the chances of successfully achieving project milestones.

Applicants who demonstrate that their opportunity meets Start-up Garage criteria will be invited to deliver an oral presentation to the Start-up Garage. Teams selected to the Start-up Garage, will sign the Start-up Garage contract prior to receiving funds and commencing the program.

The key dates are as follows:

Pre-Application February 15, 2011
Full Application March 22, 2011
Short list and invitations to present March 26, 2011
Final Selection April 15, 2011

The Pre-Application will be an early draft of your application and will not be formally evaluated. It enables the Start-up Garage team to identify interested students in order to better help them submit a stronger Full Application. If you have missed the Pre-Application date, please submit as soon as possible to ensure you get feedback in advance of the Full Application deadline.
