QUEEN'S ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION COMMITTEE
BUILD YOUR OWN FUTURE
TO THE WORLD OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION
The Queen’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Committee (QEIC) aims to educate aspiring student entrepreneurs about the world of entrepreneurship while providing mentorship to bring their innovative ideas to reality. Through the use of real-life cases, development workshops, networking opportunities with industry professionals, and collaboration amongst delegates, we help students build the foundation to create their own futures.
In addition to our annual conference, we host year-round events including speaking series, a student entrepreneurship membership program, and a summer Toronto Start-Up series to foster a learning and inclusive environment for entrepreneurial students. Our goal is to showcase the characteristics and processes of successful startups, in hopes of not only inspiring but educating students too.
Our mission is to inspire students to "build their own future" by offering year-round events that shine a light on entrepreneurship. We believe this industry deserves a brighter spotlight and are working hard to make that happen.
QEIC is ratified with the Commerce Society at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. We exist to inspire, connect and educate students and we are proud to spark excitement and enthusiasm surrounding entrepreneurship.
QEIC exists to build a bridge between students and the world of entrepreneurship and innovation, making the industry more accessible than ever before.
We are the only committee founded upon students' passion for entrepreneurship while being driven by innovation and creativity.
