In an effort to get more students to consider starting their own business, a newly hired entrepreneurship co-ordinator is reaching out to Sudbury students.

Matt Dasys was hired through an Ontario grant awarded to Laurentian University. The university has partnered with Cambrian College, College Boreal and NORCAT and Dasys will work with students from those post-secondary education facilities.

"We're targeting every discipline,” Dasys said,

“There's been a long history of just targeting commerce students, but what we're trying to do is try to find innovative solutions in any industry and find the right support systems in town."

Dasys says any student under 29 years of age can access the new entrepreneurship program. 

He's already received a few pitches from students and recent grads, including a businesses-to-business idea, a restaurant, and a web citizenship project.
