Engineering Entrepreneurship Series
Have you ever thought of starting your own company, but wondered where to begin? Do you have a great idea but don’t know how to get funding? We engineers often make great entrepreneurs and many do well in business — over 25% of all Canadian CEOs are engineers. One thing missing from the engineering curriculum is a “culture” of entrepreneurism — that making a company happen is just what people do! The goal of this series is to have real entrepreneurs come in and tell the stories of their companies and share their experiences. Our goal is to bring in recent graduates as well as a variety of entrepreneurs for you to learn from. We believe if you hear these stories you may be inspired to start your own company. The one-hour talks begin at 5 p.m., and are usually held in room 1105 of the Sandford Fleming Building, 10 King’s College Road, U of T. The talks are followed by an informal dinner with the speaker.
