Hey students, has Startupfest got a deal for you

Student entrepreneurs, have you got big startup dreams and tiny savings?

studentsStartupfest feels your pain and has got your back. After all, how exactly are you supposed to be the new up-and-coming startup generation if you can’t even get in the front door?

That’s why we’ve created a special student price to attend this year’s festival in Montreal from July 13–16.

So here’s the deal: $200 (+txs and fees) gets you into the three-day event, as long as you have a valid student ID Get your tickets here!

You’ll also have the luxury and privilege to listen to A-list of speakers like Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, machine-learning and AI savant Melanie Warrick of Skymind, perennial favourite Chris Shipley, VarageSale CEO and co-founder Carl Mercier and teen genius and Smithsonian award-winning inventor Lilliana Zyszkowski.

They’ll be joined over the course of the three-day event by a long list of CEOs and other C-level executives, as well as startup smartypants from companies like Shopify, Lightspeed, Braintree, Sampler, Red Hat, Amazon Web Services, Kairos Aerospace and more.

Beyond a great list of speakers, Startupfest also offers the opportunity to hang out in Montreal for a few days and meet fellow entrepreneurs (and wannabe entrepreneurs), founders, investors and journalists. You’ll also get to listen to inspiring pitches and stories of success (and failure), check out product demos, try your own pitch out on a captive audience and maybe even make some new friends. And who couldn’t use a few more friends (or a captive audience)?

For $200 — that’s in Canadian dollars! — you can come hang out with and be inspired by some of the brightest business talent from Quebec, Canada, the U.S. and beyond. MUST PRESENT VALID STUDENT ID ON SITE WHEN COLLECTING YOUR BADGE
