Jackson Mills saw a problem with student feedback. Originally, he thought that students were falling behind in some classes because of a translation error due to the use of jargon. He and another classmate thought that if they translated lectures into more visual metaphors it would eliminate the use of jargon. Although that’s no longer the problem he’s working on, he’s had the chance to explore what it’s like to be an entrepreneur during his Enterprise Co-op (E Co-op) term.
If you have an idea that you think you could take to market, and passion to build your venture, you could start an E Co-op. At the beginning of Mills’ 3B term in computer science, and after three work terms, he was ready for the challenge of starting a business. He realized quite quickly that it was up to him to make progress happen.
Read more about Jackson's experience on the original post from the Math website to see if E Co-op is for you.
