Are you looking for an alternative career placement learning experience? Have you considered starting your own business or social innovation entity? Never been sure about what it takes to be an entrepreneur or the pathway to take to succeed in entrepreneurship?
The startGBC Work Integrated Learning Entrepreneurship Program might be the solution for you. The program lasts for a full semester, with the cohort coming together once a week for a 2-3 hour session to discover a new topic each session, that will lay the foundations for bringing your business/social innovation idea to life. Most of the week will be spent on self-guided learning, as you investigate the weekly subject matter further and consider how you will apply it to your business idea.
You are encouraged to collaborate with other students from across the George Brown College academic centres and work closely with the startGBC coach, who will spend one-on-one time with you to identify and challenge your assumptions on the problem and solution.
Self-management and time-management is a key trait of any successful leader who wishes to be their own boss and so the success of this placement will be dependant on you investing the time into your passion, to succeed.
If you are interested in participating in this program, then please contact your co-op placement officer within your academic centre for enrolment.
