Program – SFU Entrepreneur of the Year

Home / Program – SFU Entrepreneur of the Year


The SFU Entrepreneur of the Year (SEY) program helps aspiring entrepreneurs at Simon Fraser University expand their business ideas and businesses through two major components: the Annual Competition and the Jumpstart Accelerator.

In its 6th year, the Annual Competition is a Dragon’s Den style competition where student entrepreneurs present to a panel of judges, competing for the title of SFU Entrepreneur of the Year. Last year, the program expanded to include Jumpstart, an 8-week accelerator, targeting students with basic business ideas that can be launched into businesses. Each week, local entrepreneurs and industry professionals lead the Jumpstart sessions on topics critical for every start up.

SEY 2013 is a comprehensive program designed to help build and connect the entrepreneurship community at Simon Fraser University.  We aim to recognize, inspire, and launch the next set of Vancouver entrepreneurs.
