When we look around the King’s campus, we see lots of ways that students are using the mindset of entrepreneurs: they are taking risks on new and unproven ventures, with the hope of creating something exciting that might change the world. Entrepreneurship is about taking charge of our future and looking for ways to turn our ideas in opportunities. In the broader world, this was the kind of thinking that launched Facebook, Kijiiji, eBay, and Uber. Young entrepreneurs in Nova Scotia have had enormous successes, such as East Coast Lifestyle, Springloaded, and Radian6. The King’s Entrepreneurs Society was ahead of the curve back in 1993/1994, and one of the principals in that society, Kyle Shaw is now the highly successful publisher of The Coast. King’s teaches these kinds of skills in its New Ventures stream as part of the Master of Journalism Program, and in other parts of the humanities curriculum. In 1993/ 1994, the campus strongly supported the King’s Entrepreneurs Society. Now it’s time to bring that same enthusiasm for the King’s Entrepreneurship Society. The slightly different name now reflects its new mission: it’s not about us, it’s about you. The KES will help follow students realize their dreams of creating something new and exciting that can change the world.
