Join the Entrepreneurial Community at MUN
Although you may feel like starting your own business is a lonely journey, it is absolutely not! We have a vibrant and growing entrepreneurial community at MUN and in the province. This means that no matter what challenges you face in your journey, someone else has already gone through them and can help you navigate hurdles much faster. All you need to do to join this supportive community is engage. Anyone with an interest in entrepreneurship can engage at events, gatherings or on our online slack channel!
