Sorel-Tracy creates “start-up” pathway program

Cégep Sorel-Tracy’s HUB initiative has created a new “start-up” pathway program to spark an entrepreneurial culture in information technology (IT) and mobilize the region’s business community. The pathway’s curriculum is comprised of three blocks—focused on customer discovery, customer validation, and customer creation—as well as a project-based mentorship opportunity for students in IT and members of the business community. Sorel-Tracy is implementing the program in collaboration with Ton Équiper and with funding provided by industry partners Connexion Entrepreneurs, Développement économique Pierre-De Saurel, and SADC Pierre-De Saurel.
