About Entrepreneurship 100

Entrepreneurship isn’t about sitting back and watching TED talks. It’s about putting yourself out there and getting it done. Join our interactive conversations to learn about transforming ideas into successful businesses and who can help you along the way.

Entrepreneurship 100 is an event connecting curious people with diverse entrepreneurs. Featuring an interactive Q&A conversation and a chance to meet with the panelists, Entrepreneurship 100 is the best way to learn about starting a business—no MBA required!

Best of all: we always serve refreshments and the events are free for anyone to attend, not just University of Toronto students.

A Killer Idea or “Kill That Idea”?

How do you figure out whether your startup idea is any good?

For this evening event, moderator Charles Plant will be joined by a panel of young entrepreneurs from Toronto: Quincy Poon of Plank, Bin Liu of iMerciv, and Kiran Panjwani of sQuishloc. They will discuss where their killer startup idea came from, the bad ideas that they killed, and how they came to choose which idea to focus on.
