This Month’s Top Pick

Each month we’ll feature a best practice in entrepreneurship capacity building or student support. This month features Wilfrid Laurier University.

– Each year, the BDO New Venture Competition introduces over 700 first-year BBA students to entrepreneurship. In the fall term, during BU111, students work in teams to generate ideas for a new venture. Then, in the winter term, as part of BU121, they develop a business plan and present it to their peers during lab classes throughout March. The top team in each lab goes on to present their business plan to a panel of external business community members that selects the winning team. Scholarships and the BDO New Venture Competition Cup are presented at the awards reception at the end of March.
