What is IdeasXChange?

IdeasXChange is a startup think tank at UBC that provides a space for innovation through forums, roundtable discussions, and online media. The IdeasXChange network is the place to connect with community leaders and change-makers. We also produce thought provoking online content on innovation and sustainability in Vancouver and beyond. Our online magazine also features editorials, thought pieces, writing contests, and innovators at UBC and Vancouver.


We believe in the power of collaborative learning by bringing people who think differently to address today’s pressing challenges. Our strength is connecting students across disciplines, and community members from different backgrounds through forums, impact labs and round table discussions. Our forums and case competitions encourage attendees to think critically and innovatively about pressing issues through solutions-oriented frameworks. We facilitate this through panels and round table discussions featuring innovative and influential community and industry leaders as knowledge experts. Attendees often times get exclusive access with knowledge experts, an attribute unique to our organization. As a member of IdeasXChange, you become part of a growing network that has brought hundreds of people together and dozens of influencers and thinkers.

WHY? The unprecedented issues of today compels us to connect minds and spread knowledge. We want to inspire and foster innovative thinking through our IdeasXChange hub events, and engage through insightful online content.
