Startupbarn is building a strong startup ecosystem by connecting people through community tools.
Our focus is on Waterloo, its students, alumni, and the people who have made the community a place where a very high number of global tech leaders have a connection.
We are a founder-focused organization that was born out of the Eigenspace program.
What we offer
Programming and community for students
Professional education and coaching for founders
For students, we offer free community support and a workshop series to help you develop a deep understanding of how to build your company.
Built on experience working with 1000s of early stage companies, we have a series of online and in-person workshops, coaching, and hybrid options for people starting companies.
Programming for students
In collaboration with Communitech, we are offering a place for early-stage founders to work and be part of the Communitech community.
With so much information out there, figuring out what are the most important things and how to get started is hard. This 8-week workshop will help.
Operated by Caroline and Jesse, Startupbarn builds on 20 years of experience supporting early-stage founders and ecosystems.
Our student program is free to Waterloo students. That is part of a long-term investment in the community that we have been making for nearly two decades.
