Virtual business incubator

The Business Incubator requires students to scope out and develop a business opportunity. Though the program students be exposed to priorities for decision-making in the context of setting up an entrepreneurial venture. Along the way, students will be able to demonstrate their ability to research, evaluate information and consider the ethical and cultural implications of their business proposal. The program culminates in a final Pitch day, where students present their business proposal and participate in a pitch to potential stakeholders.
