June 21, 2016

Simon Fraser University has received $10M from Vega founder and alumnus Charles Chang to establish the Charles Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship at the Beedie School of Business. The institute will allow students from any faculty at the institution to add innovation and entrepreneurship training to their education. “I believe that entrepreneurship must be multidisciplinary, which is one of the reasons why I connected so well with the Beedie School’s approach,” said Chang. “Entrepreneurship skills are increasingly vital in today’s evolving business world,” added Beedie Dean Ali Dastmalchian. “This gift serves as an investment in ensuring that the Beedie School is able to help position Vancouver as a global hub for innovation.” SFU
