Thomas and student researcher Evans present at Innovation conference

Dr. Jon Thomas of the School of Business (BC Regional Innovation Chair in Canada-India Partnership Development) and his student research assistant, Jordan Evans (UFV CIS), presented research papers on “University Entrepreneurship” and “Innovation in the Fraser Valley”, at the ISPIM Connects Conference in Ottawa April 7-10. ISPIM is the International Society for Professional Innovation Management formed in Norway in 1983 with members in over 70 countries, and ISPIM Connects Ottawa is an international peer-reviewed conference attracting leading innovation researchers and practitioners from across the world.

The event was particularly notable for Evans as it was his first international conference presentation and he was the only undergraduate student, with other presenters being professors, innovation practitioners or graduate students.

Evans took BUS 492: Directed Studies in Innovation and Entrepreneurship with Dr. Thomas in Winter 2018.
