April 9, 2014

Emily Carr University of Art + Design is launching a new program, the Scotiabank Platform Entrepreneurship Program (Platform), thanks to a $250,000 donation from Scotiabank. Platform is designed as a 6-month entrepreneurship program for recent art and design graduates and will provide students with the knowledge to develop business plans and pitches, match students with advisors and venture capitalists, and feature workshops and mentorships with industry professionals. Students will learn “basic business start-up skills and [will be introduced] to various topics including: financial planning and risk management; market analysis; communications strategies; intellectual property management; and basic business administration.” The first participants in the new program will begin in fall 2015. ECUAD News
