UoGuelph joins many universities offering entrepreneurship incubators

March 13, 2014

The University of Guelph’s Co-operators Centre for Business and Social Entrepreneurship (CBaSE) has launched an entrepreneurship incubator to help students and alumni launch their business ideas. “The Hub” is open to all UoGuelph students and graduates, and those accepted into the program will receive $8,000 in start-up funding, office space, and mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs. “We approach entrepreneurship not as a discipline but as a daily practice,” says CBaSE Director Melanie Lang. “Students are assigned to meet certain milestones based on the type of business they’re trying to start.” The Hub also offers workshops led by business professionals on topics such as financial literacy, marketing, sales and negotiation, intellectual property rights and legal matters. The Hub is taking applications until March 23, and the program will begin this summer. UoGuelph News
