Memorial’s Entrepreneurship Training Program (ETP) is a program for graduate students interested in starting a business and/or learning the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. Featuring the semester-long 'Discover' and 'Develop' programs, ETP helps graduate students explore the possibilities that entrepreneurship offers, and transferable skills to help you along your journey in whatever it is you seek.
The ETP is delivered through interactive presentations and workshops by award-winning entrepreneurs and faculty. The program covers core entrepreneurship themes and skills such as problem solving and design learning, the lean start-up methodology, sales, marketing and financial planning. The ETP also connects graduate students to local entrepreneurs, mentors, funding sources and other essential resources.
In 2013, the ETP received a national award from the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) for Excellence in Innovation and Student Engagement. It also received a national award for Program Innovation from the National Student Affairs & Services Association, a division of the Canadian Association for College and University Student Services (CACUSS).
