SFU Venture Connection has expanded its student business-mentorship program with the addition of three more mentors-in-residence. Vancouver entrepreneurs Jack Gin, Stewart Marshall and Dave Thomas will all offer their entrepreneurial expertise to promising student entrepreneurs. Mentors-in-residence set and monitor business start-up milestones for individuals and teams in the Venture Connection program, and provide advice on topics such as market research, business planning, business models, sales and organizational development. More than 1,000 students have taken advantage of Venture Connection since its launch in fall 2008, with 20 student teams currently receiving additional support through SFU’s early-stage business incubator, Venture Labs. Funding for the new mentors-in-residence comes from the Discovery Foundation Technology Education program and the B.C. Innovation Council.
