This is a visionary project designed to harness the transformative power of entrepreneurship in addressing some of the world's most pressing challenges, including climate change, ecological and social sustainability and economic parity.

With Fulbright’s reach into the world’s best research institutions, Alacrity’s track record of building successful ventures out of universities and Startup Science’s support framework for entrepreneurs, the FCEI brings together everything needed to drive large-scale systemic change.

What is the Fulbright Canada Entrepreneurship Initiative (FCEI)?

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.
