Free | For Sheridan Students Only | Primarily Virtual
If you have an idea and you want to be an entrepreneur, this is your first step to get support and launch your business.
EDGE has led the growth of entrepreneurship at Sheridan and provided a top-notch space for entrepreneurs to put in the work to start and grow their businesses.
Because of the mentorship, I had accountability. I learned people management, offering feedback, developing processes, and yes, I had a 100% increase in confidence.
The connections we made inspired us in ways we couldn’t have predicted. I can confidently say that we are capable of building and running our own game development studio.
