What is the RBC Get Seeded Program?
RBC Get Seeded is a seed fund program to help you get started with your entrepreneurial idea. It could be to help you build an initial prototype (either hardware or software) or to help you pay for the marketing/legal fees - whatever it is, we got you covered!
How much is the seed fund?
Teams can apply up to $500 in funding. You can use the money to create a prototype, enter other seeding events/hackathons, go to a conference to meet experts in your venture's industry, and anything to help you jump-start the process.
What qualifies as an "entrepreneurial idea"?
An entrepreneurial idea is any solution that solves a compelling problem. It doesn't necessarily have to be a startup/venture. It could be a cool initiative you want to pilot - but want the funds to get started.
What does the process for acquiring the Seed Fund look like?

Hey, I'm Will.
I'm a fourth year International Economics major with a background in user experience design, product management, and launching startups.
I love building things and designing cool products, like a bot that helps teams plan lunches, a card game that teaches kids the basic logic of programming, or a social enterprise that helps high school students launch new apps. I've also had the chance to work on some larger products as a UX Designer at Microsoft and a Business Analyst at Tumblr.
So grab a whiteboard, and let's chat about launching your startup.
