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?

Engineers often make great entrepreneurs and many do well in business — more than 25% of all Canadian CEOs are engineers. U of T Engineering strives to foster a ‘culture of entrepreneurism’ to instill the notion that making a company happen is just what engineers do! The goal of the Engineering Entrepreneurship Series (EES) is inspirational — to have recent graduates as well as veteran entrepreneurs come in and tell the stories of their companies and share their experiences.

These one-hour talks begin at 5 p.m. and are often held in room 1105 of the Sandford Fleming Building, 10 King’s College Road, University of Toronto. The talks are followed by an informal dinner with the speaker. You do not need to RSVP to attend the talk, but RSVPs are required to attend dinner. RSVP for a dinner now, or email Jessica MacInnis for more information.
