Global Entrepreneurship Week at BioLinc

During November 12-19 BioLinc joins the celebrations for the Global Entrepreneurship Week. The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued a statement on Global Entrepreneurship Week in which he emphasized the important role that Canadian and global entrepreneurs play in maintaining and growing a strong economy as well as creating jobs. At BioLinc we not only celebrate entrepreneurship and innovation during this week, but we also embrace the young entrepreneurs daily by providing them with support services, mentoring, training workshops, and physical incubation space.

Most importantly, BioLinc fosters collaboration between entrepreneurs by offering multi-day boot camps such as The Young Entrepreneurship Kick-off Weekend in which participants form teams to develop startups.

Check out some of the activities that BioLinc participated in for Entrepreneurship Week!
