This program employs an objective-based mentoring process coupled with hands-on workshops to enable students to advance their ideas into reality. This program was launched using support from Alberta Innovates Institutional Support for Entrepreneurial Education program as well as collaborations with local innovation supporting organizations such as Business link AB, Startup Edmonton, Alberta Women Entrepreneurs, Canadian Intellectual Property Office and Concordia Alumni Association.
