Atrek at Olds College

ATREK is a seed incubator at Olds College, we help budding student entrpreneurs explore and evaluate new business ideas. Too often ideas get stuck in developing the prototype; through lack of funding, resources, or mentorship, great ideas can be lost. The ATREK fund helps elevate this problem by offering grants up to $5,000 for access to Olds College expertise, facilities, and equipment for up to six months. Through the ATREK fund new entrepreneurs can quickly decide if the idea or project is worth further effort.
