Community is key to entrepreneurship, and clubs are the heart of student social life and one of the first stops for students seeking communities like-minded friends (and maybe future co-founders). At the Chang Institute, we aim to help entrepreneurial, innovative and changemaking clubs to build community, take on projects and achieve common goals however would be most helpful to them.
We can support clubs in many ways, such as providing industry professionals, business owners, and professors as event speakers, mentorship for student-led workshops (and in non-COVID times), room bookings, and physical space!
This year the Chang Institute, Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection, and our student-led Compass Program helped to support all different types of clubs across SFU .
Interactive Arts and Technology Student Union. We collaborated with IATSU by providing mentorship and resources for a 3-part workshop series, aimed at students interested in learning more about freelancing, building a business in the creative industry, and the entrepreneurial mindset!
Young Women in Business. We supported YWiB by providing speakers and panelists for their annual Women’s Day event, celebrating fantastic women entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs across North America.
Providing support to their Annual Hackathon, the Chang Institute, and SFU Surge.
We worked with Emerge SFU to help host a workshop series on marketing, bringing in industry experts from Market One, and providing a keynote speaker.
