What We Do


We connect creators, innovators & entrepreneurs to start and scale bold new ideas through events, workshops & mentorship.

The Hub for Entrepreneurial Activity at the University of Saskatchewan.

The Wilson Centre provides support, resources and networks to help early stage entrepreneurs start and scale bold new ideas. Through our programs, events and workshops, we strive to connect creative thinkers from across different backgrounds and disciplines, facilitate the formation and development of new business ideas, and support early stage entrepreneurs on their journey towards success.

The entrepreneurial journey doesn’t start with a fully developed idea- it starts with a way of thinking and recognizing opportunities, a curiosity, passion, and willingness to persevere in the face of obstacles and uncertainty.

Whether you’re in the process of launching a business, have an idea you’d like to further explore, or you’re just interested in learning more about entrepreneurship, we’re here to help. In addition to our programs and events listed below, we provide ongoing advice, mentorship, and information on entrepreneurial classes, events, and organizations in the community.
