We are the Gina Cody School Entrepreneurship Society (GCES), an engineering & computer science student association led by 18 dedicated and passionate like-minded individuals. We have been growing since 2020, hosting online and in person events, workshops, panels and more to help Engineering and computer science students gain entrepreneurial skills and opportunities.

Every year we host UpStart, an inter-university entrepreneurship competition at Concordia University where students come to learn new skills and put their entrepreneurial strategies to the test.

Our Mission

GCES operates with one goal in mind: igniting the entrepreneurial spirit of Engineering
students at Concordia University. 

We do so by following these three principles:


GCES aims to educate potential entrepreneurs by offering   workshops that promote initiating businesses.


GCES aims to nurture student-innovators by providing opportunities to learn and experience entrepreneurship.


GCES aims to connect student-innovators through a centralized hub and a network of like-minded individuals

We’ve hosted multiple in-person and online events and each year keeps getting better. Workshops, panels, competitions, networking events and a lot more! Our presence around campus helps connect hundreds of engineering students who wish to set a foot in the entrepreneurial world.

GCES is proud to present UpStart, an innovative entrepreneurship competition where students come together to learn new skills and entrepreneurial strategies.


Our sponsors give us the resources to provide an excellent experience to all Engineering Majors.
