Opportunity fest

The ninth annual Opportunity Fest will be held at Simon Fraser University's Surrey campus on Thursday, March 28th, 2019 (5:00-9pm). Hosted by the Beedie School of Business, the event showcases innovators and entrepreneurs from across the university, celebrating and highlighting the increasing interdisciplinary collaboration seen at SFU, and particularly SFU Surrey.

This marketplace-style festival of student creativity gives our students the opportunity to showcase their products and ventures to the wider community. Innovative products, solutions and projects, including product prototypes and business plans will be exhibited. Judges from industry, academia and the wider community will engage with student teams, evaluate their endeavours and award a number of cash and gift prizes for a variety of categories.

We celebrate the diverse range of innovations being produced and reward accordingly. This includes:

  • 4 categories (Community Health, Future of Work & Networks, Social General, and Waste Reduction) around the challenge the student teams have decided to pursue
  • Entrepreneurs Choice: As chosen by the participants
  • A showcase of "Junior Innovators"
  • Entrepreneurs Choice, Junior Innovator: As chosen by participants
  • Triple Bottom Line Grand Prize: Awarded to the project that best demonstrates an actionable commitment to people, profit and planet.
