Acadia named to 2016 list of "Top 10 Universities in Canada for Future Entrepreneurs"

The Huffington Post Canada has named Acadia University to its 2016 list of Top 10 Universities In Canada For Future Entrepreneurs.

The article states that: "entrepreneurship has swept across Canadian universities as more and more Millenials become determined to bring their ideas into reality. Shows like Dragon's Den have gained popularity, and encouraged a newfound fascination for new ventures.

UniversityHub has asked over 1,000 students to rate their schools based on a variety of areas. One area in particular was 'Entrepreneurship'."

The Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre was established 28 years ago. The article states that it "has provided entrepreneurial programs for not just students, but for individuals, businesses, and non-profits. The "LaunchBox" is where innovative student ideas take off. They provide pop-up ideation events around campus, summer accelerators, 'business video game' competitions, pitch events, and more."
