UNDERGRAD + COLLEGE

Undergraduate and college students of today are proving to be the most interested in entrepreneurship.

So you’ve got a great idea. Now what?

You are probably up to date about the challenges, risks and time involved in creating a new startup. You are working on your post-secondary education and have your whole career ahead of you. How do you ensure the highest chance for success while navigating all of the hurdles involved in this journey?

And Team up with us to become a Key Player?

Ideascout was created to help Canadian innovation succeed.

We connect ideas to the resources they need. Simple.

Our recipe: we have a network of high net-worth proven business people with money and sales connections worldwide. We combine them and the idea inside of a business generating machine to create successful startups.

What is successful? A startup that proves it has a market, proves it can deliver to that market, and then is able to scale into a thriving business.

What does Ideascout need to start?

To start the conversation we need to know what you have been working on, or what you want to work on. We can go from there.

Briefly – we mean 1, maybe 2 paragraphs – describe the synopsis of your idea. You don’t have to give it all away, there will be time for deeper details if we think we can make your idea a winner.

You are also an important piece of the puzzle, so fill us in on you!

Why Ideascout?

There is a lot to know, a lot to learn, and a lot to overcome to take an idea and make it into a prosperous business. Using Ideascout’s network gives you access to business experience, funding and the chance to grow quickly. Refine your skills and build new ones by doing, not talking. Define the role you will thrive in and together we will develop a strategy for success.

You choose what fits for you and your goals. Our network will identify the gaps and work to fill them.

You stand to gain:

  • Entrepreneurial Experience
  • Strong backing of experienced funding connections
  • Company Strategy
  • Venture with your name on it

GRAD | RESEARCH BASED

Your research work can be applied to real world solutions.


There are two main challenges facing researchers:

Funding and getting your work out of the lab and into the market.

We can solve both by connecting you with industry partners.

  • Funding – source private money and use the partnership to qualify for additional government grants. Funding extends to customer development and acquisition.
  • Commercialization – tap in to the power of proven business acumen and international sales connections. Instantly gain a team who will propel the idea from the lab bench to the hands of paying customers.

Not an entrepreneur? You define your role.

Be the functional expert, hold shares, receive royalties, see your idea succeed. You choose what fits you and your goals – everything is negotiable.

It all starts with a conversation.

Tell us what you’re working on and let’s have that conversation.

What do I need to share?

The only way we can start working to connect you is if we know what you are working on. Give us a quick 1-2 paragraph description and tell us about your expertise.

Don’t tell us everything, just the summary, we can take it from there. Links to examples
