  • Thursday, September 27, 2018

Mount Royal University has opened a space in its Bissett School of Business aimed at connecting startups with non-profits and public sector leaders.

Called the Trico Changemakers Studio, the space will serve as an incubator where business students and startup entrepreneurs can work with the public and not-for-profit sector on social or environmental challenges. For example, studio member Universal Access is working to increase the number and quality of spaces in the city that are physically accessible to people with visible and invisible disabilities. Alberta Health Services’ Design Lab — which works to solve complex health challenges — also has a presence at the studio, as does the United Way, Calgary Arts Development Authority, Generation Indigenous, and a number of artists, activists and small private startups.
