CMU Centre for Resilience

Nurturing enterprise for social change

With the purpose of incubating and nurturing social enterprises, CMU's Centre for Resilience is a co-working hub for solutions-focused social entrepreneurs and researchers.

The Centre aims to foster and develop enterprise, design, and policy innovations for a resilient economy that improves social equity and environmental protection.

Located at the CMU campus in the iconic Founders Hall (500 Shaftesbury Blvd.), the Centre will offer connections to the university's programming, where appropriate, in ways that will assist our resident entrepreneurs in the pursuit of their missions and objectives.
