Business Design Guild
The Business Design Guild trains student apprentices in the tools and techniques of business model design and innovation. Apprentices are expertly trained by a “Master” business design practitioner. As apprentices gain knowledge and proficiency in the tools and technique of business design, they will work with local businesses to explore and leverage their business models. The Business Design Guild is fortunate to have as its Master practitioner Michael Lachapelle, a Business Model Generation Certified Trainer, one of 30 worldwide and the only certified trainer in Canada.
STEAMakers Guild is a collective of creative makers who co-create interactive art and installations for immersive theatre experiences. Student apprentices will learn about the advanced technologies, tools and materials that when applied creatively can lead to immersive and participatory digital experiences for theatre audiences and visitors to art galleries and museums.
Digital Marketing Mentoring and Internship Program
Traditional marketing is having to adapt to a new world of digital content, mobile devices and services and an exploding amount of data. Marketing professionals who do not keep on top of the rapidly changing world of digital marketing face early career obsolescence. For young graduates the challenge is even more daunting as few are exposed to modern tools of digital marketing in university. Digital Marketing Ventures will bridge this gap by training student interns in the field of digital marketing with the assistance of local professionals.
