Scott Angus Joins as New MICE Instructor

A new year means a new group of students for the Met Innovation Centre for Entrepreneurship (MICE) and North Forge is proud to welcome our newest instructor to the program, Scott Angus

Scott has been working in not-for-profit and event management roles for the past nine years. In 2017, he started HP Change, a startup that aims to support students and teachers with career development experiences. What excites Scott the most is helping young leaders from across Manitoba explore their interests and connect to exciting opportunities– which is precisely what attracted him to MICE.

“I’m incredibly excited to be working with such great students in the MICE Program and see them develop their ideas and businesses,” says Angus. “The energy and creativity these young people bring is actually awe-inspiring. I feel fortunate to be able to play a role in their journey.”

The MICE Program connects students with local entrepreneurial mentors to help them design their own startups. It is through North Forge where students will learn the design process, gain critical skills related to seeing a project through from beginning to end and develop a solid business concept. 

“We are lucky to have Scott Angus join us as the instructor for the MICE Program at North Forge,” says Marney Stapley, Vice President of North Forge. “Scott has the energy and enthusiasm that matches the students. He started with the program in January and has already created experiences and meaningful connections with the students.” 

Students will attend sessions with North Forge mentors where they update the group on their progress and are introduced to key contacts in the startup community. Learners also engage in weekly online learning modules on entrepreneurship, which provide the learners with a grounding in the literature and theoretical foundations of entrepreneurship.

“Entrepreneurial skills are becoming more and more valuable in our schools, organizations, and communities,” says Angus. MICE not only nurtures these skills in these young leaders but provides experiences to expand their capacity. Opportunities like this are so important for our young people, which is why I’m pumped to do what I can to contribute to that.”
