Key stakeholders in Canadian business, government and academia have recognized that improving Canada’s entrepreneurial culture is critical to becoming more globally competitive, and that Canada’s academic institutions must be an important part of the solution.

Through this program, a myriad of new initiatives are emerging on Ontario campuses, including outreach campaigns, experiential learning opportunities, mentorship programs and startup accelerators.
