The Path is not just for business students

Did you know that The Path Maple League can provide funding and support to help transform your idea into a business? This Maple League program offers business mentorship for all students regardless of their field of study! Students become members of The Path and receive guidance to develop and pitch their idea, along with funding of $1000 per student to transform their idea into reality.  

While it is commonly assumed that you must be a business student to participate in The Path, this is not the case! The Path welcomes all students within the Maple League of Universities (consisting of Acadia University, Bishop’s University, Mount Allison University, and St. Francis Xavier University) to join its program and receive support to make their idea a success.  

After you sign up with The Path through their website, they will place you in one of three tiers and begin the onboarding process. You will work with your Entrepreneur in Residence, Janan Anvar, through each tier and learn how to develop your business model, perform customer testing, develop your solution, and finally launch your solution. The Path can connect members to mentors specific to their idea or business to help them take their idea to the next level. The Path provides free access to the LeanStack continuous innovation platform that provides workshops, tools, and coaching. 

The deadline to sign up for The Path this semester on the website ( is January 22. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Janan at [email protected] or visit
