UCalgary launches UCeed Haskayne Student Fund

September 16, 2020
The University of Calgary has launched a new fund – The UCeed Haskayne Student Fund – to create a bridge between students and local startups or venture capitalist communities. This new fund is student managed and will be integrated into the curriculum taught at UCalgary’s Haskayne School of Business. UCalgary says that it will “develop Canada’s entrepreneurial and private equity leaders of tomorrow to create sustainable economic opportunities for our city, province, and country.” “Our students will have the unique opportunity to be mentored by leading venture capitalists and angel investors while learning to manage all aspects of a real-dollar private equity fund,” says UCalgary instructor Lesley Tims.  UCalgary  (AB)
