Create a product. Pitch to Judges. Sell your vision.

Halton’s most exciting student tech entrepreneurship competition of the year put on by Silicon Halton’s Tech Under Twenty. We had 30 teams of 120 students competing to Capture the Cup!

The TU20 Cup is a multi-month event focused on motivating youth to get involved with technology and business. Teams of 2-6 students worked together with the help of a mentor to innovate a solution using technology relating to the yearly theme, helping charities and youth. Watch the recap video below

$15,000 To Start Your Tech Business

This year we partnered with the Oakville Community Foundation (OCF) to empower students to start a business focused on addressing youth issues. After building their prototype and business plan, the winners of the TU20 Cup will received a $15,000 contract from a local charitable organization to turn their prototype into a real life product and start their own business!

OCF 2018 Youth Report

Over the past year, OCF has been gathering key information to create a modern youth report to get a snap shot of the lives of youth in Oakville and North Halton. The report highlights concerns and opportunities that the community should work address, such as Oakville having a higher poverty rate than the Regional average.

The report is a great place to get started in identifying youth issues and to further explore your areas of interest. Our goal is to solve a number of key problems in our community with ingenuity of the next generation.
