Project SEED

Through Project SEED (Socially Engaged Entrepreneur Development), Brock students and leaders in Niagara work side-by-side to initiate projects that enhance the social, economic and cultural landscape of their community.

By providing resources, like funding of up to $600, mentorship from experts with connections, project development workshops and SLIC resources, this initiative will help you to turn your ideas for social change into reality.

Vision

A wild flower may produce 2,000 seeds per year. Those same 2,000 seeds of potentially beautiful flowers are transferred by the winds into different areas of land. When a wild flower seed falls on particularly fertile ground, the plant reproduces quickly and plentifully. In a similar way, when your world-changing idea is matched with the right resources (Project SEED), the idea can create and grow positive change at Brock, in the Niagara community and beyond.
