Stuart Browne, CEO of Pycap Venture Partners, was nominated for the 2019-2020 Schulich School of Business John Peace Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award.
The John Peace Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award was established in honour of John Peace, a part-time instructor at the Schulich School of Business between 1986 and 1996. John had a small law practice in downtown Toronto, focusing on real estate law. He also taught business law and real estate courses at Schulich.
In the nomination letter for Stuart Browne submitted by Chris Carder and Moren Levesque, Co-directors of Entrepreneurial Studies, we learn that in addition to his excellent teaching, Stuart also donates much of his time volunteering for Schulich events, as a judge for Schulich Startup Night Competition, as a coach and mentor at Schulich’s Startup Founders and as a panelist for CDC events. They write, “And last but not least, when Schulich was looking to help small and medium sized businesses during COVID-19, he worked quickly to help us design and launch the Schulich Pycap COVID-19 Business Support Centre. The launch is helping hundreds of small businesses and created placements for 15 students/graduates.”
