Experience Ventures was created at the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking at the University of Calgary. We are proud to work with schools to onboard students and companies, and support evaluation of this innovative new program. The goal is to scale Experience Ventures after this pilot period ending in March 2022.
To help ensure program success:
Each school is given the opportunity to receive funding to implement a pilot.
Experience Ventures aligns with the school’s priority areas of focus.
Five types of entrepreneurial thinking placements are available.
Schools will be funded to recruit, run and implement the programs in their respective communities.
Experience Ventures commits to recruiting 20 percent of students from under-represented communities, including visible minorities, women in STEM, Indigenous students, students with disabilities, newcomers to Canada, and students from rural and remote communities.
