Dawson College’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education organizes the annual Entrepreneurship Week (Eweek). Set to coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week, this 5-day intensive and intense entrepreneurial boot camp will bring together budding entrepreneurs and the business community for a series of unforgettable events. New this year on the fifth day, Dawson College will host Glambition, an entrepreneurship event for high school girls.
Eweek has attracted as many as 2500 participants in the past. This year we hope inspire and excite just as many people. We have over 50 guest speakers, mentors and coaches in 23 events supported by 30-plus volunteers, 16 community organizations and 10 sponsors. This intensive entrepreneurship boot-camp will be offered over five days. It includes a college version of Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank called Dawson’s Den. You can even speed-date an entrepreneur!!
