About the Project

This Flexible Learning project is funded through the UBC’s Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF). The goal of this project is to provide a world-class entrepreneurship flexible learning platform for use UBC wide in the undergraduate, graduate, and non-credit courses and programs. This project is intended to support cohort and self-paced company start-up processes and to provide validated & curated content/learning resources on different concepts/contexts of entrepreneurial learning.

From this entrepreneurial learning platform, you will find a series of videos embedded into topic-based modules, various activities that will help you hone and apply your knowledge for implementation, recommended readings and resources, and tips and hints that are useful for real-life experiences.


We are continuously improving platform, and we’d love to collect feedback from you. Specifically, we’d like to know:

  1. How you are using this platform. In what context?
  2. If you have any feedback on the content and how to improve this platform.
  3. If you have encountered any issues while using this platform (i.e. broken links, video playback, etc.).

Please email ubcventuretraining@gmail.com with your feedback.
