Entrepreneurship Academy

Don’t just go out and get a job, create your own.

To meet growing entrepreneurial demand, Canadore College has launched the first-ever Entrepreneurship Academy in Canada. The Academy’s establishment is positioned to revolutionize and transform learning experiences and be responsive to new ways of leading, thinking and learning through environmental disruption.

The Entrepreneurship Academy at Canadore is not your typical school of study. Learn to think like, and be your own boss in a new model of learning that doesn’t exist anywhere else in Canada.

The Entrepreneurship Academy leverages foundational business programs offered at Canadore while at the same time initiating new areas of study, inclusive of Entrepreneurship Management, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurial Tourism (Hotel, Resort, and Restaurant), and more entrepreneurial programs to come.

The Academy offers hands-on, practical training and offers students the opportunity to join a vibrant ecosystem of existing business owners and investors who coach and mentor students throughout their learning journey at the College.

Learn while doing. Train full or part-time, start your own business or manage aspects of Canadore’s corporate services.

Learn in the classroom and in the community. At the Academy you will have the opportunity to join an ecosystem of business partners and investors who will act as your mentors.
