November is Entrepreneurship and Innovative Thinking Month at UM

President Benarroch invites faculty, staff and students to participate in events that foster an entrepreneurial mindset

October 6, 2023 — 

The twelve types of experiential learning identified by the University of Manitoba reflect our commitment to the education of the whole student, the diversity of learning experiences at UM, and the dynamic, seamless nature of the experiential learning landscape. During November we are shining a light on one type of experiential learning: entrepreneurship.

For our inaugural Entrepreneurship and Innovative Thinking month, we have gathered events in November that help you foster an entrepreneurial mindset. These events will provide faculty, staff and students with opportunities to learn about, for and through entrepreneurship.

“These events are for everyone,” says President Benarroch, “Even if you don’t see yourself as a traditional entrepreneur. At UM we nurture entrepreneurial thinking in every faculty as part of our pursuit of big ideas. Big ideas that help mitigate climate change, bolster human health, advance Reconciliation and so much more.”

President Benarroch invites you to participate in an event or two. Take in a talk from UM alum Dr. Anastasia (Stasi) Baran, co-founder and COO of nQube Data Science, witness a live pitch competition, participate in lunch hour webinars, or attend a 2-day learning event to build your entrepreneurial thinking skills, and so much more.

Visit the Entrepreneurship and Innovative Thinking Month webpage for all event details and registration information.
