Strategic Priority #3

Training & Outreach

We aim to develop and execute accessible entrepreneurship training for the University and beyond.

Many current programs outsource entrepreneurship and innovation training. There is an opportunity to develop standard and customizable education solutions to serve our own University ecosystem and lead to growth in new markets beyond the University. This will not only generate self-sustaining revenue for the E&I initiative, but also build stronger collaboration and cohesion across the McGill entrepreneurship ecosystem and Montreal business community.
