who are we

Who are we?

We are the Gina Cody School Entrepreneurship Society (GCES), an engineering & computer science student association led by more than a dozen 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 Missions

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


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


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.
