The University of Guelph’s business school’s vision is to create Leaders for a Sustainable World, an extension of that would be to enforce business as a force for good. At Guelph, we believe it is our social responsibility to properly prepare our graduates to be active, engaged and contributing members of society. Entrepreneurialism plays a key role in that it helps to better our students whether they are building their own business, or helping someone else build theirs.
Our approach for this conference will be utilizing innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to navigating the continuum between traditional and social business practices along with curricular and co-curricular programming to meet multiple stakeholder needs across research, practice and policy platforms. Possible tracks within streams include:
- Enterprise education
- Gender and Enterprise
- Rural Enterprise
- Social, Environmental and Ethical Enterprise
- International Entrepreneurship
- Business creation and innovation
