The place to be 

November 13 to 16, 2017!!


Dawson College’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education will host Entrepreneurship Week (EWeek) coinciding with Global Entrepreneurship Week, November 13 to 16, 2017

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international movement to inspire millions of young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity through entrepreneurship. It is estimated over 15 million youngsters participated worldwide in tens of thousands of events and competition for Global Entrepreneurship Week. In Montreal, Dawson College's EWeek will provide a diverse and strong line-up of speakers, networking events, contests and activities for Montrealers and Dawson College students alike.

Many young students will have their first glimpse of a possible alternative career path and connect with seasoned entrepreneurs. All Montrealers are invited and all events are free. Hear inspiring stories of successful entertainers, photographers, illustrators, designers, dancers, programmers and farmers who launched their own businesses.

Dawson College is ideally placed to be a gathering place of high-profile community events. Situated in the heart of Montréal’s downtown core, at the Atwater metro station, Dawson is Québec’s largest CEGEP with roughly 8,250 full-time day students, 2,400 continuing education students, 600 faculty and  a 200+ team of support staff. The college currently offers over 30 programs in 50+ fields of study, including a variety of programs in the creative sector.

We hope to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.  Do you have a big idea??? Would you like to sponsor and event?  Do you want to connect with like-minded people or maybe just observe what the buzz is all about?  Join us for EWeek in November!!
