The Schulich School of Business Career Development Centre organized a panel discussion featuring Pycap CEO Stuart Browne as one of the panelists.
Stuart graduated with an MBA from the Schulich School of Business in 2009, during the last economic crisis. On the panel he discussed the difficulty he and many of his peers had at that time in securing meaningful employment. Eventually through working in numerous contract positions within junior mining, investor relations and an angel investment organization, Stuart was able to carve out his own path through entrepreneurial efforts.
His main advice to his audience was to generate value by finding problems people and organizations are having in the market, and to creating employment opportunities by using their skills and resources to solve those problems.
