eCoop

Are you a student entrepreneur, changemaker or team ready to commit to your start-up full-time for a semester? Entrepreneurship coop (eCoop) allows you to receive a financial award while working full-time on your very own start-up—complete with dedicated mentorship and space from Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection. 

Great business ideas don't just happen after graduation. Aspiring entrepreneurs may find inspiration from a class or as part of a group project, the lab or their experiences out driving change in the world.

Thanks to the Charles Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship’s paid individual and/or team eCoop experience — the first of its kind in Canada — they can have both.

Individual or team eCoop participants are provided financial awards of $10,000, earn university co-op credit and focus full-time on their start-up with mentorship and other support from Venture Connection.
