Through a generous donation from Repsol (formerly Talisman Energy), the Chiu School of Business launched the Repsol Hub for Social Enterprise in September 2014. The Hub is now a well-established initiative that highlights community-based social entreprising and innovation-themed programming on campus and through the VentureQuest Business Idea Competition.
The Hub offers a variety of opportunities for our learners who are entrepreneurs and innovators in the making, providing experiences through inclusive programs and activities that support and encourage creative and collective impact in the community, such as:
• WannaB Wednesdays for aspiring student entrepreneurs and innovators
• A Fulltime Social Entrepreneur-in-Residence
• VentureQuest Business Idea Competition
Through activities and events promoted through the Repsol Hub for Social Enterprise, organizations will continue to engage with our learners, such as: Junior Achievement, Momentum, Futurepreneur, The Better Business Bureau, Innovate Calgary, Respect for the Earth and All People (REAP) and Startup Calgary, to name a few.
