Want to give back?

Want to give back to Mohawk and help launch the careers of promising young entrepreneurs?  We'd love to get in touch.

Get Involved

Young entrepreneurs thrive and succeed when they are surrounded by a community of mentors, coaches, supporters and advocates. At Mohawk College, our entrepreneurs (and intrapreneurs) come from all of our programs and work with us at various stages of their business idea.

Our community partners- both individuals and organizations- make a positive impact and contribution to helping develop the talents and ideas of Mohawk students. You can volunteer to be a guest speaker, workshop host, become a mentor to a SURGE Client, sponsor an event or judge at our pitch competition.

Hire Talent

the collective, powered by mohawk college students

The Collective 
Are you looking for access to creative entrepreneurs such as photographers, videographers, musicians or graphic designers? The Collective helps Mohawk creative students and recent alumni establish their freelancing careers. Members of The Collective have been pre-selected by faculty and received entrepreneurship training in order to be featured on this platform. 

Co-op Programs and Field Placements 
Hiring a student can have many advantages, such as expanding your team or bringing in new expertise. If you are a start-up or small business and want to hire a student with awareness of the entrepreneurship ecosystem, we can help your new hire by providing resources and some initial coaching.

Entrepreneurship in Hamilton

Are you looking for entrepreneurship advice and support? While SURGE works primarily with current students and alumni, there are many other partners in the Hamilton and Burlington Entrepreneurship Ecosystem which can work with you with or without a referral from SURGE.
