CBU launches central region chapter of In.Business at uWinnipeg

March 25, 2015

The University of Winnipeg this month hosted the launch of the Central Region program of “In.Business – A Business Network for Indigenous Youth,” developed by Cape Breton University’s Purdy Crawford Chair in Aboriginal Business Studies. 60 students and 13 mentors gathered to kick off the program, in which students will pursue business ideas and compete in challenges, allowing them to explore the world of business and make informed decisions about postsecondary studies. “The national program … will have approximately 300 students and 50 mentors from across Canada when we complete the rollout. Our main goal is to provide students from across Canada with the opportunity to participate in The Crawford Chair’s Aboriginal business mentorship program regardless of where they live in Canada,” said Crawford Chair holder Keith G Brown. The federal government has committed $5 M over 5 years to the initiative. uWinnipeg News | Canada News Release | CBU News
