Last Thursday, WEtech’s own Irek Kusmierczyk was among several guest speakers at a University of Windsor entrepreneurship event.
The Business of Innovation Program workshop is a seminar put on every semester by business and legal consultant at the University of Windsor’s Centre for Enterprise and Law. The event covers the basics of starting a business from a legal perspective (trademarks, intellectual property and patents) and from a business perspective (sources of financing, for example).
“CEL provides an invaluable service by providing a platform where eager young entrepreneurial minds can partner with organizations like WEtech and the Small Business Centre that provide the kind of support necessary to launch and grow their startups,” says Irek Kusmierczyk, Project Manager at WEtech Alliance. “Whether its mentoring, financial support, or space in a business incubator program, organizations like WEtech are ready and eager to share their tools for startup success”.
Other speakers included business students Jennifer Seedu and Jacob McCourt (also intern at WEtech Alliance), Wissam Aoun, LL.B., Sabrina Demarco (Executive Director, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Development, Small Business Center), Veronica Samek (Director of Communications, Workforce Windsor Essex) and Nicole Sleiman (Program Manager, Centre for Enterprise and Law).
The Centre for Enterprise and Law is an entrepreneurship-focused organization located on the University of Windsor’s campus led by co-directors Dr. Francine Schlosser and Professor Myra Tawfik. Recruiting top performing business and law students each semester, the CEL encourages development of local business in Windsor and Essex County through its collaboration with local industry, community organizations, and academia.
