About

Edmonton Unlimited partnered with the University of Alberta and Dr. Andre McDonald from the Faculty of Business to develop and deliver the first cohort of the Experiential Learning in Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (ELITE) program, a program supporting young black founders ages 15 to 22.

Accepted participants receive hands-on learning to help young Black founders navigate the world of entrepreneurship, and work-integrated training in the fields of science, engineering, and technology.

In this program, participants are matched with a research professor, a company in the industry, or a government agency to work on a project during an 8 or 16-week paid internship period. Interns also receive entrepreneurship training and wellness coaching, culminating in a final capstone showcase where students present their products and ideas.
