Enter Fabbulist, an online platform that helps melanin women find beauty stylists that truly get their hair type and skin tone

Erin Pickles leans into tech sales

Taking a leap of faith, Erin joined the first Sales Lab cohort despite some reluctance as to whether sales was the right path for her. She was a dedicated single mom with experience in customer service, but tech sales would be a whole new world.

Design student launches mental wellness kit

Press Pause founder, Taylor Jackson struggled to find a co-op placement in the early days of the pandemic. She took a shot at the Venture Co-op program, submitting a project that she worked on in her second-year Studio course. A start-up was born.


"When we joined the Venture Lab, within the first week we were both surprised and humbled by the amount of interest and care our coach immediately invested into us! Having a dedicated coach who took the time to really listen to and understand our business idea (and us as human beings!) was instrumental in our progress and success within the program."

"Conestoga Gig Lab program was really helpful for me personally. The program is demanding but also very rewarding for those who are eager to succeed in their freelance career."

-Aleksandr Radaev

"The Sales Lab at Conestoga has been an amazing partner of Vidyard's over the past few years. Sales Lab helps develop the students' skills to be relevant to the workforce, so when we hire a graduate we know that they will be a top performer in our sales organization. Vidyard has hired several graduates from the Sales Lab program. Knowing that a new hire has gone through such extensive training gives our hiring managers peace of mind that they will succeed in their roles."

-Dan Wardle, VP Revenue, Vidyard
