Communitech helps students interested in business, entrepreneurship or STEM fields discover the Waterloo Region tech ecosystem.

Through a mixture of recruitment fairs, workshops and challenges, Communitech connects post-secondary students to the latest and greatest in the tech world.


Currently available programs:


Campus Ambassadors

A volunteer opportunity for students looking to impact the Waterloo Region tech scene in a big way. Campus Ambassadors act as a liaison between Communitech and our member companies and universities, promoting Waterloo Region tech companies, campus and new graduate opportunities.


Code/Design to Win

Code/Design to Win is exactly what it sounds like, two completely different competitions that lead to a chance to win some serious cash in the Waterloo Region finals. If you’re a student who loves computer science, programming or product design, this is a challenge for you! The top 50 coders and the top 25 designers are eligible to earn a trip to Waterloo Region to meet with local tech companies, meet other challengers and compete in the final challenge for $5000.
