The program engages experts in business,technology, interaction design, industrial design, and materials-based research in order to transfer knowledge to emerging entrepreneurs who demonstrate the desire and capability to establish technology companies in BC, particularly in the connected devices space between hardware and software. By bringing experts from different backgrounds to the University, the program will build relationships and networks that can support students as they create, refine, and launch the next generation of technology-driven businesses and products.
