Alumni of the Conrad Centre continue to make an impact in Waterloo, Canada, and on the world stage. This is only the most recent of several initiatives to showcase the Centre's alumni and students. For Global Entrepreneurship Week in November 2013, five alumni were profiled in blog posts. In May 2014, an Archiveswebpage, an up-to-date list of external media coverage, was published. Now, the stories of Conrad alumni and students will be highlighted in individual profiles.

Entrepreneurship is part of the University of Waterloo's DNA. In fact, entrepreneurship is so closely associated with a degree from the University of Waterloo that 44% of incoming Waterloo students in 2013 self-identify as being entrepreneurial, and 78% of incoming students agree that the University of Waterloo is a good place for future entrepreneurs.
Leaders in entrepreneurship at Waterloo have come together to develop an online, 100-level course to satisfy the growing demand for entrepreneurship education.
Alumni and students of the Conrad Centre are regularly featured in the news media for their accomplishments be they competition results, new product launches, funding announcements, or speaking engagements, to name a few.
