Named for the blank slate that all entrepreneurs face before creativity fills it with good ideas, Slate is the heart of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Mount Royal University.
Today, the Slate Innovation Lab houses the minds, projects, and startups of Mount Royal University's brightest entrepreneurial students. Through thoughtful design and an engaged student community, Slate has become the best spot on campus for brainstorming, innovation, and collaboration. By offering whiteboards, meeting rooms, reconfigurable furniture, and a comfortable atmosphere to students, faculty, and entrepreneurs, Slate is seen as both a catalyst and incubator for innovation and entrepreneurship in Calgary.
In early 2011, the RBC Foundation generously donated $1.1 million to the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In recognition of this gift, Slate was created on the third floor of the Bissett School of Business.
The Slate Innovation Lab is on the third floor of the Bissett School of Business (EB3121) and is open to students from across campus.
