First Entrepreneurial Climate Survey results-FR and SJ

It is now almost a month since we launched the first Entrepreneurial Climate Survey (ECS) at UNB.

To date, we have learned some interesting details about the students entrepreneurial interests. In particular, it was rather surprising to discover that an important part of respondents wants to tie its future with a cannabis-related business. In fact, it seems to be the top choice so far, followed by some engineering domains.

So far the response rate constitutes less than 0.1 per cent of the UNB's student population, so we do not know how representative our results are. This percent is very surprising as it either shows that (1) UNB does not have an entrepreneurial spirit (which I will not believe!), (2) there is no belief in effectiveness of the student-oriented initiatives, or (3) there is a problem with our communication mechanism.

I would like to ask everyone who saw this to click here and then join our E4E | Entrepreneurship for Everyone Facebook group. If you think entrepreneurship is not for everyone, please join us as well. Help us learn why you think so and let's see what you say in a year.

Join now and just give us a chance! The success of initiative highly relies on your interest in being helped with building a strong future where you do what you like and earn enough to be happy!

Also, don't forget to fill out the survey as this is an important starting point in helping us understand how to build our work!
