A new series highlighting ventures being created at UBC

Expen Solutions

Expen makes a road surface condition indicator device that monitors for unsafe road conditions (such as ice) and provides early warning signals to drivers.

Expen is a team from the cohort of talented entrepreneurs from the 2014 New Venture Design (NVD) program.

Join the conversation by following #UBCVentureSeries on Twitter.

The NVD for-credit course is jointly offered by Applied Science and Sauder School of Business, where teams of 4th year business students, engineering students and students from other faculties come together to create real startup ventures using the same lean launch techniques applied in e@UBC’s accelerator programs.

NVD is a key element of UBC’s integrated approach to supporting entrepreneurship. Venture teams that decide to carry on after course completion are well prepared to work with e@UBC’s entrepreneurs in residence and mentor network to build their venture into a real startup. e@UBC also sees many NVD alumni return in future as entrepreneurs with innovative new venture ideas.
