#MadeBySFU

The SFU Spirit Shop and Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection present #MadeBySFU, an annual competition celebrating product entrepreneurs from Simon Fraser University.

About #MadeBySFU

Product ventures, small product businesses, and craft-makers! You are invited to compete in #MadebySFU for a chance to sell your items at SFU Spirit Shop’s online store and three brick-and-mortar stores.

This competition is open to SFU undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, faculty, and alumni (graduated between 2009 - 2019).
