Student Ambassador Team

Are you interested in entrepreneurship and innovation? Are you a woman or non-binary student at Memorial? We have an exciting opportunity for you!

The MCE Student Ambassador Team is a leadership program that offers women and non-binary students at Memorial University an opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills while learning about high-growth entrepreneurship.

As a student ambassador, you’ll receive tailored entrepreneurship and innovation training and access to a mentor. You’ll also receive access to organized activities, and, if Covid restrictions permit, travel to another location in Newfoundland and Labrador or to another startup ecosystem in North America to engage with women and non-binary entrepreneurs who are leading successful startups.

This is a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills, meet entrepreneurial peers, expand your network and have an impact on the Memorial community.
