We launch people

The Entrepreneurship Collective is a place to pursue your entrepreneurship potential. Whatever the industry, business model, scale or role, we are dedicated to helping you do great things. For us, that means creating an environment where who you are is central to your success and to our process. You do you and we’ll help with the rest.

Our values

It takes a village to launch a person. We proactively curate connections and collaboration within the collective, in the Conestoga community and in the broader ecosystem to support the success of our clients.

We move at the speed of the real world. Focus and urgency inform program development, iteration and delivery to enable our clients to learn fast and succeed swiftly. No wasted time, no wasted effort.

We see you. A dedication to empowering our clients to reach their full potential is at the core of all our interactions and communications. When you succeed, we succeed. 

We live at the intersection between what the world needs and what Conestoga offers. Opportunities can start with the students or the market, but they all converge in a space that serves both. 


Our team

At the collective, every team member has deep experience and expertise and is committed to leveraging their knowledge, connections and know-how to support the vision and goals of our clients. We are united in our passion for people who work hard and dream big, and the opportunity to help human beings pursue their potential.
