Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation

At Laurier, there are nearly as many ways to immerse yourself in entrepreneurship as there are to be an entrepreneur. As a leader in entrepreneurship education, Laurier offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels to give you both the theory and practice of turning your ideas into reality.

For undergraduates, there are plenty of ways to study entrepreneurship. The Entrepreneurship Core option prepares you to develop and launch a concrete business idea. The Social Entrepreneurship Option, unique in Canada, helps you develop ideas that are financially viable and socially responsible. It includes local and international experiences. Science Entrepreneurship offers courses and a Science Maker Lab that provides equipment and mentorship for those who want to design, create and test prototypes, and turn scientific innovation into businesses. All faculties at Laurier have at least one course in entrepreneurship or social innovation.

Our graduate entrepreneurship programs can help you go from employee to employer or scale up your technology leadership career as an entrepreneur, social entrepreneur or technology leader. The MBA in Entrepreneurship helps you launch your venture while earning your MBA. The Executive Master’s in Technology Management (Lazaridis EMTM) prepares you to think like a C-suite leader in a world facing ever-increasing complexity, global competition and disruption.

For ideas that are ready to launch, Laurier hosts LaunchPad, an incubation program at Communitech in the Lang Tannery building (Laurier is a founding academic partner of Communitech), the Accelerator Centre, and the Brantford Campus Community Innovation Hub.
