NNCE’s Launch Dal program emerged as a result of a SSHRC research study completed by the Centre entitled, “Embracing a Culture of Usefulness: Understanding The Role of Entrepreneurship in Building Effective Networks to Advance Innovation”. The knowledge gained from this research was used to develop new and innovative courses and extra-curricular programming were developed and supported by the NNCE as part of the knowledge mobilization plan to assist individuals in achieving greater entrepreneurial success.
