Royal Roads opens entrepreneurial centre in downtown Victoria

July 23, 2015

Royal Roads University has moved its Eric C Douglass Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies into a new location owned by the Victoria Advanced Technology Council. The location—named Fort Tectoria—is an established site for innovation and serves as the base for the high-tech sector in Victoria’s downtown core. Set up in 2007 with a $1.6 M endowment, the Douglass Centre’s mandate is to engage the community through entrepreneurship. Centre Director Geoff Archer said, “what we are trying to do is engage with you in a way that is win-win for our students and for small-business owners in the Victoria area.” Times Colonist
