UWindsor’s Alumni Association recently announced a new financial award to mark the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre’s (EPIC) first anniversary.
The Alumni Association EPIC Founders Award was created through revenue generated from the annual Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament and will provide $25,000 in support of EPICentre’s mission to encourage the personal success and economic well-being of UWindsor students, graduates and the community.
EPICentre provides collaborative innovation space for new and existing ventures; mentors start-ups; and supports innovation and technology transfer, job creation, and business sustainability.
The Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament is enjoyed each year by more than 100 University of Windsor graduates, corporate sponsors and the community, whose gift will help students in the early stages of developing a business idea. Students in the EPIC Founders program work and are paid from May to July to explore their business product viability, create their business model and learn the “Starting Lean” methodology.
