The University of New Brunswick has received $1M from RBC to help students hone their entrepreneurship skills. The RBC Innovative Action Fund will support a variety of experiential activities associated with UNB’s Technology Management & Entrepreneurship program, including student pitch and product design competitions, a fund to help students move from ideas to working models of products, and an export marketing fund to help start-ups explore new markets outside of NB. “UNB is changing the conversation about business development in New Brunswick for a generation of new entrepreneurs,” said Dhirendra Shukla, Chair of the Dr J Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management & Entrepreneurship. “This gift from RBC will ensure that our programs can continue to develop, expanding UNB’s role as a regional and national leader in entrepreneurship education.” UNB
