Connect with us!

The Genesis Entrepreneurship Centre, located at the Main Campus SC128 (right by Tim Horton’s) is the gateway to entrepreneurship and professional development at St. Clair College. It is a hub that connects students, alumni, faculty and the community. The Genesis Centre provides all guests with resources, programs, and support to provide them with tools to help each one succeed in whatever path they choose – whether you work for yourself, or for someone else. If you have a business idea or solution, this is the place to start!

In an effort to keep everyone safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Genesis Entrepreneurship Centre will be hosting all programming in an entirely virtual format. All posted Workshops and events will be delivered through Microsoft Teams.

If you are unable to attend an event due to a personal or school scheduling conflict, please email genesis@stclaircollege.ca and we will make arrangements to accommodate you. If you are interested in a one-on-one mentorship consultation, those can be set up any time via the above email address.
