Humber receives $750K to support entrepreneurs

November 24, 2021
Humber College has received a $750K investment from BMO Financial Group to support entrepreneurs at the college. The donation will support the BMO Launch Me Competition, during which students develop and pitch business ideas and receive resources to start their own businesses. It will also expand the competition through the addition of three new streams focused on women, entrepreneurs and future business leaders, and new graduates. “This … aligns with Humber’s goals to help remove systemic barriers that women, racialized groups and students with disabilities have historically experienced in advancing their business ideas and careers,” said Humber Faculty of Business Senior Dean Alvina Cassiani. Humber will be naming its Centre for Entrepreneurship event space the BMO Innovation Commons in recognition of the investment. | Humber (ON)
