What is the Fulbright Canada Entrepreneurship (FCEI) Program?

FCEI aims to unlock the potential of the Fulbright research network of 1000+ Universities; this will implement technological innovation and commercialize research that solves some of the world’s most pressing issues, create jobs, and drive environmental and social impact.

“The unprecedented partnership of traditional startup acceleration and a fully-scalable online support program will provide the best of both worlds to participants and also allow the effort to expand more quickly.”

Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Canada Entrepreneurship Initiative has stood as a hallmark of international educational exchange, promoting mutual understanding between nations through academic and cultural exchange programs. With the launch of the Fulbright Canada Entrepreneurship Initiative, Fulbright continues to evolve, bridging borders and minds in the pursuit of a more prosperous and harmonious global community.
