Kingston, ON - Sept. 24, 2015 - True to its name, the Master of Entrepreneurship & Innovation (MEI) program welcomed its inaugural class the week of September 8th by showcasing innovation hubs on campus.  As part of their orientation, MEI students toured the campus and visited the SPARQ labs, the polymers lab and a workshop. These and other state-of-the-art facilities are open to MEI students to use to experiment with product design and other creative aspects of launching a new business.

After their first full week of classes, the students pitched a business idea and were then critiqued on both the style and content of their presentations. This exercise enabled them to practice their skills in advance of their final project — a pitch of a fully formed business idea to a panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts.
