New Venture Program (NVP)


New business research and innovation centre to train future corporate innovators

With an advanced trading lab on one end, a state-of-the-art boardroom on the other, and a connection to the largest academic library system in Canada in the middle, The BRIDGE is ready to start living up to its name.
