Or maybe start by learning a little more about us.
How Legacy came to be
Back in 2010, a uOttawa student attended an entrepreneurship conference in Toronto. He came back home all hyped up and realized there wasn't anything like it in Ottawa. So boom, Legacy was born.
From then to now
Since 2010, Legacy went from...
- 100 to 600 attendees.
- being hosted at one of the rooms in City Hall to taking up a whole floor at the Shaw Centre.
- welcoming students from 3 to 18 different campuses.
Over the years, we've built a growing network of student entrepreneurs from across Canada.
Legacy is a meet up for those like-minded students who come to connect and get inspired by the stories of successful entrepreneurs.
Not an event planner?
TBH, none of us are. At Legacy you’re not planning an event, you’re creating a culture of entrepreneurship sourced from our 5 core values:
There is no fail, only try.
We’re students who have nothing to lose (no mortgage, no kids, no big responsibilities) and we’re lucky enough to have a student pass. So we never “f*ck up”, we just learn.
We think about Legacy from the time we wake up ‘til the time we go to bed. We're all here because we love what we do.
The copy for this page is being written at 3 a.m. on a Friday.
Legacy pushes you to get uncomfortable, do things you might feel you’re not ready for.
We set high expectations for ourselves because we know it's better to aim too high and fall a little short then aim too low and reach that goal.
We're always learning, especially outside the classroom. We'll be sending each other articles at 3 a.m. because we just happened to discover a new and better way to do something.
CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO
Legacy faces each task and challenge with a creative and innovative mindset. We don't believe in the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality. We believe in always finding a better way to do things.
So If you want to...
You get full creative control over your role
Jesus *aka you* Take the Wheel
Put your ideas to the test in a risk free environment
Have your work reach thousands of people
THEN YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE
