Programing and Events

RBC Accelerator Program

The RBC Accelerator Program allows you to focus on your venture full time for a whole semester while getting paid to do it. You have the choice to work on your own business or find an early stage company that will hire you.


Our workshops provide students and alumni the opportunity to build a strong foundation for starting a new business, social enterprise or any initiative. Each workshop is focused on building the entrepreneur as well as a new initiative they are working on. You can work alongside other student entrepreneurs and learn what it takes to get your startup off the ground. These evening workshops develop foundational skill sets in entrepreneurship and walk you through critical steps in starting a new initiative.
