Genesis Centre aims to foster innovation and entrepreneurship

Strategies. Solutions. Supports.

Those are some of the themes a unique business development program will focus on over the course of eight weeks this summer.

The Evolution program is offered by the Genesis Centre, Memorial’s award-winning business incubator. Early stage entrepreneurs get a chance to work with the centre’s staff and mentors to help foster their business ideas, products or services. They also get the opportunity to promote their venture to an industry panel.

“Whether you’re planning to apply to the Genesis Centre’s incubation program or need objective feedback on your product idea, the Evolution program helps you reach that goal,” said Greg Hood, president and chief executive officer, Genesis Centre.

“The eight-week program delivers what would normally take a year or two for an entrepreneur to experience in the real world. Ultimately, it optimizes an entrepreneur’s chances of success in the market.”

The cost to participate in the Evolution program is $100 per person, which includes membership to the program’s alumni and mentor network.

The program is gaining a reputation in the business community. This winter, 16 companies were enrolled.

The deadline to apply is June 3. More information is available online.
