We empower

young people to build a future they want to live in. 


We design learning experiences that empower young people to become social innovators. 

UpstartED is a Canadian nonprofit that equips students between the ages of 12 to 18 with the technological, social and emotional, and 21st century skills required to succeed in a complex future as social innovators. We believe there is no such thing as "too young" when it comes to changing the world.


We work with forward-thinking institutions to launch programs that range from in-classroom workshops to semester-long incubators and summer camps in which students engage with innovation practices used by the leading organizations and companies in the world. 


The learning experiences we design are immersive, forward-thinking, and ultimately transformational.


We serve both

students and educators.

Our community

You could say we have some fans. Here's what one of them has to say.

"Getting involved with UpstartED's social innovation programs was the best decision I made as a student.


From the design thinking activity, to building a business plan, to the rush of adrenaline when we stepped on the stage to pitch our tech-oriented solution, I learned so many invaluable skills and concepts."

- Zhi Ying Ge, Marianopolis College
