Schulich alumni launches $2,500 scholarship for Entrepreneurs
Delvinia founder and CEO Adam Froman, (MBA’92) has a message for Schulich MBA students with entrepreneurial instincts: an interesting journey awaits.
Froman took the entrepreneurial route, rather than pursuing a career in investment banking or management consulting, a decision that has taken him on a rollercoaster ride over the years. Speaking at a Schulich Alumni event, Froman was really impressed with several students’ ideas.
Now celebrating fantastic success with Delvinia, Froman felt it was time to help develop the next generation Schulich entrepreneurs. That’s why he established the $2,500 Delvinia Scholarship for Entrepreneurship and Digital Innovation, which will be awarded to a second-year MBA or IMBA student specializing in Strategic Management, Marketing or Entrepreneurial Studies. Recipients will be chosen based on academic excellence and a written submission that demonstrates and their commitment to entrepreneurial spirit, digital innovation and drive.
Any student who receives the award will also be eligible for informal mentoring. “I never had the luxury of a career mentor,” he says. “Being an entrepreneur is a journey. It’s not all rosy. It requires support and intestinal fortitude and having a true understanding of what it takes. I’d like to help to support and guide students and young entrepreneurs on this bumpy ride.”
