Event Details

Entrepreneurs are natural problem solvers. Beyond creating companies that bring innovative and world-changing ideas to the global market place, entrepreneurs are acting as community builders, industry change agents, and global disruptors. Find out why.

Join us on July 11th for a candid conversation on why entrepreneurs are stepping up to build stronger communities, both locally and globally. Hear from a successful entrepreneur leading by example, the director of a leading entrepreneurship program and largest free startup incubator in the world, and the president and vice-chancellor of Canada’s most innovative university who counts entrepreneurship as part of the school’s DNA as they explore concepts of philanthropy, equality, and socially responsibility in today’s dynamic entrepreneur-led companies. Find out why societal benefit has become an important priority for entrepreneurs and a few suggestions for getting started.
Panelists will include:

  • Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor, University of Waterloo 
  • Sam Pasupalak, chief operating officer and co-founder, Maluuba
  • Jay Shah, director, Velocity

Panel will be moderated by Donna Litt, co-founder, vice-president and chief operating officer, Kiite. Welcome remarks by Stephen Watt, dean, Faculty of Mathematics.

Open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the public.
