Through a strategic partnership between Co-op and RBC, the University of Ottawa is helping students develop an entrepreneurial mindset. The partnership aims to provide entrepreneurially-minded CO-OP students with new and varied opportunities. Participants are able to test ideas, learn the myriad skills needed to get a business off the ground and graduate either to a full-fledged operation or to further incubation programs. Rather than hoping for a position with an existing company, the RBC uOttawa CO-OP Entrepreneurship Program’s participants will learn how to become successful entrepreneurs.

The presentation will describe how the program worked while showcasing students that have taken part.
