Give to the MBC Founders Fund

Support the Master of Business Creation (MBC) founders as they launch and grow their businesses in this unique program.  The program is offered by the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy at the David Eccles School of Business, in partnership with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Your donations will support the MBC Founders Fund, a pool of seed funding for students to access when they need to further develop their prototypes, design websites, travel to meet with potential clients or investors, and more. 

Thank you for investing in both our founders and Eccles School!
