McMaster Launches Program to Help Young Entrepreneurs: Open to post-secondary students and recent graduates across Ontario
Book smarts meet street smarts in McMaster Universityâ€™s latest program intended to help young entrepreneurs start new businesses.
The Entrepreneurship @ McMaster STEM Program is intended to help young entrepreneurs prepare and launch a business based on innovations they have developed as part of their education. The program is open to Ontario students or recent graduates with two or more years of post-secondary education in science, technology, engineering or math.
â€śMany science and technology students develop great ideas during their education, but they are hesitant to make the leap from idea to start-up business. This program will guide participants through the steps of launching a technology based start-up company,â€ť explains, Elsie Quaite-Randall, Executive Director of the McMaster Industry Liaison Office.
The year long program features a half-day workshop in May, a week-long, residential entrepreneurship course in July and monthly follow-up meetings from August to March. Participants will study common start-up issues such as marketing, business models, finance and team building.
