The Lean LaunchPad Course (in development)

This course will be offered through the CIEE and will help budding entrepreneurs develop and validate a business model. Based on the Lean LaunchPad class of Stanford University, this course will offer students a hands-on approach to launching a new venture using flipped classroom pedagogy, business coaches, mentors and online tools. Our pilot project class is targeted for the winter of 2016.


The École-entreprise is a student-run venture within the college. It is an opportunity for students to offer their professional services to the Dawson College community for monetary compensation. A faculty member will support students of select programs in the development of a business centre that will provide services to the college community. Eventually, those services would be made available to the public. Example: graphic design or video services, business services such as marketing plans, etc. The École-entreprise will be rolled out in the winter of 2016. Are you a student interested in offering your services to the community? please contact Madeleine Bazerghi
