Dunin-Deshpande QIC Global Network

The Dunin-Deshpande Queen's Innovation Centre Global Network aims?to establish innovation hubs around the world to support ventures who are expanding globally.

Since the inception of the QIC Summer Initiative (QICSI) in 2012, 26 companies launched as a result of?QICSI?remain in operation today. For many companies, expanding into global markets is crucial for their success, but this is risky and challenging without local connections. Queen’s expansive and strong alumni network presents an opportunity for Dunin-Deshpande QIC’s student entrepreneurs.

The?Global Network leverages the existing alumni network to create “innovation hubs” in major?centres?of commerce around the world such as London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and New York City, among others. Queen’s alumni will be able to provide a soft landing for our student entrepreneurs, and connect them with local business people in their sector. Alumni are enthusiastic about providing mentorship to the young entrepreneurs in our program, and many are in a position to offer warm introductions in the venture’s sector, potentially provide otherwise unoccupied cubicles to the students, and help them navigate cultural nuances, among other valuable supports.
