Rural eHUB: Supporting student entrepreneurs in rural Alberta
Rural eHUB is an initiative managed by eHUB at the University of Alberta and is governed by the Rural Alberta Development Legacy Fund and the 4-H Club of Alberta Investment Fund. Rural eHUB aims to partner with service providers and post-secondary institutions to amplify the effect of existing programs and services. The program was launched to support and raise the profile of rural-student entrepreneurship in two ways: 1) by providing cash awards, travel support, internships and marketing and PR to students 2) by launching joint initiatives with off-campus partners - when invited. We hope to engage more rural students to promote entrepreneurship all across Alberta.
