Entrepreneurship @ Conestoga (E@C)
What is it?
More students are considering entrepreneurship to be the career path that is right for them. At Conestoga, students will learn why college is an excellent place to learn about the career options available through entrepreneurship. Conestoga also has the added advantage in being located in one of Canada's most attractive entrepreneurial communities.
To help our students take advantage of opportunities in entrepreneurship, the Centre for Entrepreneurship (C4E), Conestoga faculty and alumni entrepreneurs have come together to build this program.
E@C is free to access for Conestoga students and includes three learning modules, each 50 minutes in length, which are designed to introduce our students to entrepreneurial concepts.
Students who complete the E@C modules will receive Co-curricular Record credits. Be sure to complete your reflection after attending a presentation.
