Almost 150 student entrepreneurs from post-secondary institutions and high schools across the country came together at Saint Mary’s in February 2017 to share best practices and learn from national business leaders at the third annual Starting Point Student Entrepreneurship Conference. With a focus on fostering innovation and encouraging students to think big, Starting Point 2017 featured master classes, an ideation tournament, Funder Speed Dating, and $10,000 in prize money. This year’s inspiring keynote speaker was Warren Macdonald, the first double, above- knee amputee to reach the summit of Africa’s tallest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro.
