The Wallace McCain Institute at UNB runs programs for high-growth potential entrepreneurs to give them what they need to succeed. We focus on entrepreneurs that are at a crossroads in their life & company. We surround them with experiences to inform their gut and push beyond where they ever thought they could go. We focus on building business judgment rather than teaching text book skills. The flagship program (ELP) is so impactful that after the year is over, 99% of the entrepreneurs completing it commit to meeting quarterly for the rest of their lives. Take a look at this 2009-2017 WMI Impact on GAA infographic.
