Entrepreneurship isn't a straight path, and the fastest-growing companies aren't running alone.

Entrepreneurs need a place to build, reflect, and finesse their plans in the company of likeminded, passionate founders. The Entrepreneur 1.0 Innovation Academy will provide the perfect ecosystem for your venture to thrive as you embark on the journey of a lifetime.

Hosted in partnership by TechAlliance and the Ivey Business School at Western University, E1.0 equips you with the practical tools and knowledge required to manage the challenges your startup will face and help you develop the network of peers and mentors that every entrepreneur needs.

Across 10 weeks, you will craft the critical components of your business plan while gaining an understanding of finance fundamentals and how to attract investment, determine how to find product-market fit and grow sales, communicate your value proposition, and determine your growth goals through esteemed Ivey faculty, seasoned entrepreneurs, and subject matter experts, including interaction and coaching through our Venture Growth & Corporate Innovation team.

Invest in your venture’s growth and develop a deep understanding of how to tackle challenges, put the right advisors in place, and gain the knowledge to prepare and pivot for your business to thrive.
