Group of CEGEPs receives funding to enhance entrepreneurial spirit, support business academies

May 8, 2017

A group of fifteen CEGEPs from across Quebec came together last week to voice their support for the creation of business schools at their institutions. The gathering coincided with an announcement from QC Minister of Higher Education Hélène David of $3M to support the CEGEP network in helping students develop their entrepreneurial spirit and finance innovative projects. The Journal de Montréal reports that several speakers at the CEGEPs' gathering expressed hope that the new initiative would help address what they saw as an “entrepreneurial deficit” in QC. One of the initiatives funded by the new QC investment will be the CEGEP Entrepreneurial Education Project, which will see the involved CEGEPs pool their resources to help promote “outside the box” thinking.
