The Acadia Entrepreneurs’ Association was founded on one principal, to celebrate and expand Acadia’s entrepreneurial eco-system. Entrepreneurship on campus is continuously changing and is always going to change – it is an ecosystem.
Entrepreneurship can be busy, challenging, and chaotic. You want controlled chaos. So, surround yourself with passionate people and management becomes less hectic and time consuming; it becomes organic.
The AEA has two main goals in mind; connecting entrepreneurial students with the necessary resources to follow their passions (e.g. mentors, developers, competition preparation), and creating a space that fosters creativity and networking on campus where students can grow their ideas/start-ups.
“Someone must take the first steps – and those who don’t must follow.”
– Jessy Gervais, Co-Founder of the Acadia Entrepreneurs’ Association
