Bridging Entrepreneurs to Students
The Bridging Entrepreneurs to Students (BETS) program is a specialized co-op program established to support two key groups: junior engineering, mathematics, environment and arts co-op students, and seed and early-stage startup companies who would not otherwise have the resources to hire full-time staff or co-op students for 16 weeks. The BETS program brings these groups together by pairing teams of two entrepreneurial co-op students with companies for a 14-week project placement.
The program consists of one full week of intensive training and development, followed by a 14-week placement rotation with a startup. The Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business mentors and supports these co-op students throughout the 15-week term, helping them develop transferable employment skills through a series of workshops, seminars, and work-term placements.
A breakdown of the program is available for students to view.
Details for interested startup companies are also available.
