GSS Talks @ The Global Startup School


Sharing Stories + Connecting Entrepreneurs 

Investing in your education is as important as ever, but today, there are many alternatives to the traditional MBA. The new Global Startup School at Tamwood Careers has set out to redefine how entrepreneurship is taught in Canada with a goal of cultivating the next generation of business leaders. This January 2018, Tamwood Careers launched the Global Startup School in Vancouver, BC – a unique program bridging the gap between traditional business school and accelerators. Learn more about our programs offered here.

As part of the Global Startup School, GSS Talks was created to be a platform of open communication in our community to share stories and learn from one another. This is what GSS Talks is all about: Sharing Stories + Connecting Entrepreneurs. It is with great pride that we announce our very first session at the Global Startup School which is open to all entrepreneurs and those interested in the startup world.
