Applications are open for a competitive award that gives Brock’s entrepreneurial students an edge on the path to success. Established in 2014, the Deborah E. Rosati Entrepreneurship Award annually provides at least one student with $10,000 to become a full-time entrepreneur in the Spring/Summer term.
The student who receives the award will work closely with BioLinc, Brock’s on-campus business incubator run by the Goodman School of Business, and gain access to physical space, support services, mentorship and networking opportunities from May to August.
The award is open to any Brock student with almost any type of business concept. Co-op students are able to use the semester towards a co-op work term.
Brock students Ethan Foy and Olivia Poulin were last year’s recipients, and they have both enjoyed entrepreneurial success thanks in part to their ability to focus their efforts to their businesses full-time last summer.
Earlier this month, Foy won a $14,000 startup prize package at Monster Pitch, an entrepreneurial pitch competition hosted by the Brock Innovation Group in partnership with the Goodman School of Business and BioLinc. The fifth-year neuroscience student from Oakville won the competition by pitching LifePoints, his company that provides users with monetary rewards for time spent at fitness facilities.
Students can apply for the Deborah Rosati award on the BioLinc website until Sunday, Jan. 28.
