February 16, 2010

Engineering and people is a topic not really taught at school.

Hopefully he will save us some of the trouble of learning the hard way!

$500,000 for Student Innovators

November 29, 2009

Peter and Diane van der Gracht and Greg Peet established a venture fund of $250,000 that was matched by the BC Innovation Council to seed student innovations.

“Entrepreneurship@UBC provides innovative and entrepreneurial students with mentorship from the business community and the opportunity to start their own companies with pre-seed capital from the venture fund created for this program”, said Dean Rockwell, CEO of BCIC. “The Council is committed to working with BC’s educational institutions and private investors to build a network of incubators, such as Entrepreneurship@UBC, that will train students to become entrepreneurs and launch new businesses.”

Entrepreneurship@UBC is now open to UBC Okanagan innovators, thank you Deb Woo.  The details will be available online in the new year.  Get in touch with the CSCE Executive if you want to develop your idea and pursue funding.
