Training entrepreneurs to bounce back from COVID-19
Share this story

An innovative virtual incubator is helping women whose careers have suffered during the pandemic turn their skills to community-minded entrepreneurship.

Co-created by McMaster University, the online community resource offers peer-reviewed research and training on creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial skills. The focus is on social entrepreneurship and community currency – a way of trading locally so that money stays in the community rather than flowing out of it.

“Maybe it’s time for a different type of capitalism. It’s not dog eat dog: It’s people who give back, who focus on issues like the environment, on community development, on addressing inequality.”
