Campus news
On February, from 17-25, Almaty hosted an intensive international business course from York Entrepreneurship Development Institute (YEDI), which is the top ranked university business accelerator in the world. The course is designed to give a comprehensive introduction to the Canadian business landscape to help entrepreneurs enter the North American market. The program had participants from multiple countries, and covered topics like business development, finance, communications and Canada's legal system.


After this international course, alumni are welcome to apply for the Canadian Start-up Visa, through YEDI. All accepted entrepreneurs become residents of one of YEDI's Business Acceleration Campuses for a minimum of one year. This is a big advantage because YEDI has the highest success rate in the world for its graduates.


«YEDI operates a unique model, our faculty consists of successful and active entrepreneurs with a strong academic background, and we have deep connections with all levels of the Canadian business ecosystem. For this and many other reasons, our programs are very competitive and this gives us the opportunity to select the best projects»,– says Dr. Marat Ressin, YEDI President and Head of the Department of Global Finance and Small Business Development by York Enterpreneuship Development Institute (Canada). 


Another element which helps start-ups to succeed is YEDI's well-equipped Business Acceleration Campuses. YEDI is sector agnostic, which means it works with projects in any industry. For that reason, campuses have a range of facilities including office space, food production, theatre and TV studios, and so on.
