Seven Teams - Seven Ideas. Over the three days, Niagara College students developed their business ideas and business models with the help of eight of Niagara's industry professionals. Their ideas contributed to help solve problems in the one sector that connects us all: Social Enterprise.
As the Project Manager for NCTakeOff this school year, I am so excited to work with all of the Niagara College student entrepreneurs and idea-makers! Let's talk about failure. Let's talk about how we can be an entrepreneur but also entrepreneurial. Niagara College is the best place to be innovative so make sure you take advantage of it!
On Saturday, September 9th, 20 individuals from Niagara College’s ncTakeOff network attended an annual gathering of mission-driven entrepreneurs, leaders, and professionals in downtown Toronto, called the Archangel Summit. The event featured several well-known motivational and entrepreneurial speakers, a pitch competition where one inspirational winner walked away with $50,000, and an energetic performance by social entrepreneur and Grammy nominee, Akon.
Representatives from the City of St. Catharines, Niagara College, family and friends, and Niagara community members gathered at 9 James St. in downtown St. Catharines to celebrate the grand opening of new studio spaces for six ncTakeOff-supported businesses.
