StartupStorm is a club for aspiring entrepreneurs, programmers, and designers at UBC.

What we do

StartupStorm is a club for aspiring entrepreneurs, programmers and designers at the University of British Columbia.


Our mission is to foster an environment that encourages innovation and creativity in the world of tech in which students can connect with like-minded and passionate individuals. By providing the right tools, resources and support, students can gain hands on experience, mentorship and learn how to use cutting-edge technology outside of the classroom setting.


We’re taking UBC innovation by storm.



Connect with UBC’s tech community

Meet other students who are passionate about the tech space through our events and workshops.


Discover cutting-edge technology

Learn a new programming language or a new web framework at our hack nights and technical workshops.


Build real, meaningful projects

With events like nwHacks, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate on real projects with developers, designers and entrepreneurial students with the support of industry mentors.

Upcoming events

nwHacks is the biggest 24-hour hackathon in Western Canada hosted at the University of British Columbia. This hackathon aims to bring together the brightest talents from schools around the Pacific Northwest region.



Celebrate open source this October by participating in Hacktoberfest, a month-long festival of code. Stay tuned for prize announcements.
