Meet the Team 

entrepreneurship@UBC is led by a team of dynamic thinkers, doers and creative problem solvers who work behind the scenes to bolster intra and entrepreneurial leadership and move innovation to impact through venture creation. Our team includes experts hailing from academia and industry, to entrepreneurs who've scaled companies from the ground up time and time again.


At entrepreneurship@UBC, it is our mission to build, inspire and educate the leaders of tomorrow. We believe entrepreneurial thinking is at the core of innovative solutions, and that entrepreneurship itself is not defined only by a venture building endeavour, but also by an entrepreneurial state of mind.
