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 Curriculum prepares you to develop and launch a concrete business idea. The Social Entrepreneurship Option, helps you develop ideas that are financially viable and socially responsible. It includes local and international experiences. The Science Maker Lab and the Library Maker Space provide equipment and mentorship for those who want to design, create and test prototypes, and turn innovations into businesses. 

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 Specialization 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 Data Hub (Laurier is a founding academic partner of Communitech), the Accelerator Centre, and the Brantford Campus Community Innovation Hub.
