Session Description

This presentation reflects on the results from an environmental scan of the startup competitions and engineering entrepreneurship resources at universities in Canada and the US with the top engineering programs. By examining trends between engineering students being finalists in these competitions and library resources made available to them, we can identify the most effective ways to engage with and support engineering entrepreneurs. These results will be applied to a broader library context, and the presenters will highlight how various types of institutions can adapt or broaden their practices to better support engineering entrepreneurs.
