START UP CANADA

2016 National Startup Canada Award Winners

Lots of Great Technology Research! 

I posted this because every teacher is entrepreneur in the classroom.

Have a look at the the Entrepreneurship 3 Part AQ .

Brock has an Entrepreneurial Centre.
A concentration in entrepreneurship provides you with the knowledge and skills required to start your own business or work in the small business sector. Areas related to entrepreneurship include family business, social entrepreneurship (i.e. non‐profit firms), independent entrepreneurship (i.e. starting a for‐profit firm), and corporate entrepreneurship. Career opportunities can include starting your own company or working in the development of new business opportunities within existing companies.


Today we must foster learning tasks that foster creative thinking and Entrepreneurial spirit.  

Congratulations to the 2016 Startup Canada Awards winners, each of whom have been recognized by their peers as strong role models for Canadians of all ages and entrepreneurs across all sectors for championing a culture of entrepreneurship,” said Brenda Halloran, Chair of the Startup Canada Board of Directors.
