PODCAST: Past recipient talks benefits of Deborah Rosati award

Applications are open for a coveted award that provides Brock’s business-minded students with a boost.

Introduced in 2014, the Deborah E. Rosati Entrepreneurship Award provides two students annually with $10,000 each to become full-time entrepreneurs in the spring/summer semester.

Students who receive this award will set up shop in BioLinc, Brock’s on-campus business incubator run by the Goodman School of Business, and gain access to support services and mentorship and networking opportunities from April to August.

Any Brock student with almost any type of business concept can apply. Co-op students are able to use the semester towards a co-op work term.

The scholarship is generously provided by Brock graduate Deborah Rosati (BAdmin ’84) who has shown incredible dedication to supporting entrepreneurship at the Goodman School of Business.

Students can apply for the award on the BioLinc website until Jan. 27.

Last year’s recipients were Madi Fuller and Dan Giddings, both of whom are grateful for the support they received.

“I have been able to make so much progress on my business but also have been given so many opportunities to network across the province,” said Fuller.

“Before this work term, I was worried that I wouldn’t have the time or the financial stability to make my business successful but now I have been able to finish development of my app, Campus Brainiac, purchase amazing marketing material and much more all thanks to the Deborah Rosati award,” she said.

Fuller appears on the Conversations with Goodman podcast below.
