As an entrepreneurship and innovation student at the Haskayne School of Business, I was exposed to the full range of business disciplines which gave me a solid foundation in business operations. The experience I received leading the Solar Car project was invaluable for helping me understand the collaboration between different fields of expertise. Working in this cross-disciplinary environment gave me the skills to really succeed in building my current IT business. I now have the confidence to sell our services to a range of industries, and deliver on our promises in a successful manner.
