Ryerson Entrepreneur Institute (REI) has introduced a new initiative called Business Innovation Hub to help small- to medium-sized businesses adapt to the uncertain economy during COVID-19.

The team consists of student consultants and faculty advisors from diverse professional backgrounds who offer a fresh perspective to the company while using Ryerson’s exclusive resources to implement creative solutions.

“Ryerson’s Business Innovation Hub has risk-free solutions for companies suffering during the pandemic,” says Katherine Tran, business development, Business Innovation Hub. “We are a team of six co-op students who want to make a difference.”

The initiative offers a range of services to businesses, including:

The process involves three stages:

Stage 1: The team schedules an in-person meeting with the company to fully understand the business’s functions and needs.

Stage 2: The team identifies opportunities, drafts a proposal, and implements an innovative solution at no upfront cost.

Stage 3: If the business is satisfied with the team’s work, the latter requests a charitable donation to Ryerson University to continue to offer its services and add value to the company.
