Innovation Ambassadors

Supporting the innovative mindset at Western, our Innovation Ambassadors are self-identified researchers who have expertise in entrepreneurship, commercialization or knowledge mobilization. Through their work across campus, our ambassadors are charged with the goal of connecting great ideas in their faculties to our growing entrepreneurship ecosystem.


Innovation Ambassador Adam Power Talking To Medical Innovation Fellows

At their core, Innovation Ambassadors are about sharing – sharing of ideas, of guidance, of understanding, of expertise, of a particular insight into entrepreneurship unique to Western.

They are self-identified researchers from across campus who have experience and expertise in entrepreneurship, commercialization or knowledge mobilization. Innovation Ambassadors are an essential component of the entrepreneurship ecosystem here at Western University. Through their work in faculties and departments across campus, they are dedicated to developing and supporting an innovative mindset at Western.
