2022 Ernest C. Mercier Lecture in Entrepreneurial Science: Bracing for the Entrepreneurial Thrillride

The Lassonde School of Engineering and Schulich School of Business invite you to attend the 2022 Ernest C. Mercier Lecture in Entrepreneurial Science.

We are honoured to welcome Dan Tzotzis (BBA ’02, MBA ’10), co-founder of AWAKE Chocolate to present this year’s lecture Bracing for the Entrepreneurial Thrillride.

The lecture will be held virtually over Zoom Webinar, and we encourage guests to engage in the Q&A session following the lecture.

Bracing for the Entrepreneurial Thrillride:
20 years of stories, paired with the occasional insight, Dan will share his perspective on what to expect as a new entrepreneur and some of the lessons he has picked up to help manage through the roller coaster ride of an entrepreneur’s life.

About the Ernest C. Mercier Lecture in Entrepreneurial Science
In an effort to inspire and empower future generations of students at York with a sense of the possible, Ernest C. Mercier’s wife, Dr. Eileen Mercier, a York graduate (MBA ’77, Hon LLD ’10), established the lecture series in her late husband’s name. Bridging the worlds of business and commerce with the intensive research world of STEM, the series presents an entrepreneur and renowned scientist who has used his/her own science education as a springboard to other enterprises.
