Entrepreneurship Resources for Students

Learning in the classroom. And beyond.

Whether it's tackling cases in the classroom, planning the winning presentation for a business plan competition or working on start-ups in Africa, there are plenty of activities for students inside and beyond the classroom.

In the Classroom: Entrepreneurship Certificate

The Certificate in Entrepreneurship engages Ivey students in the knowledge and practice of entrepreneurship, enhancing their ability to achieve their professional, economic and personal dreams.

Beyond the Classroom: New Venture

This team field project allows students to develop a new venture idea through research, a comprehensive Business Plan and a "pitch" to an external review panel or investors.
