The University of Ottawa's Entrepreneurship Hub is proud to have been able to put together such an interesting roster of events, which will undoubtedly stimulate and nurture the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the University of Ottawa campus.

We relish the chance to showcase the spirit that drives our innovators, our community, and the success of our many entrepreneurial initiatives across campus.”
