As we promote youth and entrepreneurship, we are featuring entrepreneurial student leaders showcasing how each one has made an impact on their community across North America. In this blog, Dr. Yvonne Wang shares how she has made an impact in the entrepreneurial community in Edmonton.
Which current startup has caught your eye?
Recently I have been very impressed by the Nanopatch technology that was invented by Professor Mark Kendall who founded Vaxxas, an Australian start-up biotechnology company.
If you were to start your own business or work for a startup which industry would you want to work in?
I am most interested in biotechnology and food science and technology i.e. probiotics and nutraceuticals.
As Co-President of the Tech Comm Club, what impact have you had on the entrepreneurship community at your school?
I have had numerous opportunities to work with an amazing team of mostly MBA students to organize seminars, workshops and networking events for students and postdoctoral fellows across campus to learn about innovation and entrepreneurship. We want to help to establish key connections between students and members of the entrepreneurship community in Edmonton to enhance transfer of ideas and technologies from the University of Alberta to the market.
