September 22, 2014

Support provided by the Government of Ontario’s On-campus Entrepreneurship Activities (OCEA) program will allow the Goodman School of Business‘ BioLinc business incubator at Brock University to launch Kick-Starting Entrepreneurship, a hands-on entrepreneurship training program for Niagara youth.

“This program, hosted by our BioLinc facility, will strengthen Brock and Niagara’s entrepreneurial activities and in turn grow our University’s entrepreneurial culture and opportunities over the long-term,” says Don Cyr, Dean, Goodman School of Business.

“At BioLinc, ‘BIO’ means new and unique Business Ideas and Opportunities so this new program will leverage our institution’s assets, as well as Niagara’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, to provide young entrepreneurs with the activities, training and resources that will help them determine if entrepreneurship is a viable career choice for them.”

The OCEA program is part of Ontario’s Youth Jobs Strategy, announced by Premier Kathleen Wynne in October 2013. Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) is managing the administration of the $5 million OCEA program.
