Title: CBaSE: Entrepreneurship at Guelph
Author: Lang, Melanie; Doherty, Erin; Usanovic, Azra
Abstract: Launched in 2009, CBaSE assists in the realization of the three pillars of the College of Business and Economics (CBE): (1) transformational learning, (2) research with impact, and (3) community engagement. Recognizing the need for more experiential learning opportunities, as well as sustainable solutions to economic, social and environmental problems, CBaSE offers learning experiences that enable the collaboration of faculty and students with the local community, on business and market research and other projects. CBaSE also offers a startup incubator, a Business Consulting course, and a variety of events and workshops that have the potential to transform student’s understanding of their disciplines, worldviews, and abilities. From these experiences, students are also given the opportunity to master disciplinary knowledge and develop essential skills. As a strong supporter of businesses with a triple bottom line, CBaSE consults with established business and help grow start-ups that focus on social and environmental gains. The past year’s programming and successes underscore CBaSE’s commitment to growing and coordinating entrepreneurial education, incubating an expanded number of new businesses, and supporting new product development and social innovation.
