What We Do

We help connect creators, innovators and entrepreneurs to start and scale bold new ideas through events, workshops and mentorship.
Our mission is to grow the next generation of entrepreneurs.

The Wilson Centre provides University of Saskatchewan students with the applicable training, networks and tools they need to start a business, creates connections between Colleges and the business community, and collaborates with other organizations to leverage and promote entrepreneurship throughout the community.
