 Entrepreneurial by Design

How do students become entrepreneurs?

Student projects are encouraged to plan their design projects toward commercialisation during this Capstone Design course, even before they have completed their degrees.

The University of Waterloo's unique "inventor owns it" IP policy contributes to the successful commercialization of many projects, and with ground-breaking ideas leading to the creation of the MYO armband, BufferBox, PelvAssistTM and the Pebble Smartwatch had their geneses in Capstone Design.
