YEDI’s First Hybrid Classroom!

8 years ago, we launched our first program with the opening remarks of Dr. Middleton and Dr. Ressin. We are so excited to announce that yesterday, once again, Dr. Middleton and Dr. Ressin were able to host our first hybrid program. YEDI has adapted to this new reality by integrating a new hybrid learning environment, revolutionizing the traditional classroom and using cutting edge technologies that offers seamless interaction between those in person and those online. We are following all current COVID-19 regulations to ensure a safe and positive learning environment.

Congratulations to our Incubator Program Graduates!

Following the success of our first virtual Not-for-Profit program last fall, YEDI took on the challenge of hosting our world renowned Incubator program online. We extended the accessibility to entrepreneurs all over Canada, the result was a collection of innovative participants ready to take on 16 weeks of intensive learning. 

On June 16th, these knowledgable entrepreneurs got the opportunity to showcase their business plan, models, and milestones to an investor audience. The ventures, ranging from the education sector to the health sector and beyond, excelled at their pitches resulting in an extremely successful virtual venture fair. 

YEDI is so proud of all our graduates, we extend our deepest wishes of success for them and their venture’s in the future. As always, many thanks to our wonderful partner, Schulich Executive Education Centre.

Congratulations to our Not-for-Profit Program Graduates!

It all starts with an idea. Over the past 16 weeks, not-for-profit leaders have refined their visions and missions, tested their offerings and devised efficient and sustainable business plans. Along the way, the participants have been encouraged and guided through the commitment and expertise of their program advisors, instructors and mentors, and we thank them for their dedication and invaluable contribution.

Even with the challenge of running a program during COVID, YEDI was able to successfully host the first virtual Not-for-Profit Venture fair. The organizations, ranging from the mental health wellness sector to the business development support sector and beyond, excelled at their pitches resulting in an extremely innovative and insightful venture fair. 

YEDI congratulates its NFP graduates and wishes them all the best of luck with their organizations in the future!
