Dobson Academic Director Marie Josee Lamothe shares how the Centre has been guiding budding entrepreneurs since 1988 in Le Devoir. The Centre backs students, faculty and anyone working at the university, hosts the McGill Dobson Bootcamp and Cup Competition, and offers multiple entrepreneurship programs, including the Entrepreneurial Women Lean Startup.

“There is a time when most investors are reluctant because the risk is very high. This is where we want to provide support and make a difference,” explains Lamothe.
