Starting February 1, 2019 Bradyn Parisian BBA’08, MBA’12, ICD.D’18, will be the inaugural Rawlinson Executive in Residence in Indigenous Entrepreneurship with the Hill and Levene Schools of Business.

“We are delighted to have Bradyn on board and we are eager to create more opportunities for Indigenous students who are aspiring entrepreneurs,” expressed Dr. Gina Grandy, Dean of Hill and Levene Schools of Business. “It is through the continued generous support from our community, such as the gift from the Rawlinsons, that we are also able to make a positive economic and social impact on our surrounding communities.”

In this role Parisian will develop annual initiatives for Indigenous students interested in entrepreneurship as a career path. This will involve providing an opportunity for students to develop the necessary skills to become successful entrepreneurs, but also increase interest in Indigenous entrepreneurship, and create a network of mentors to support students in their entrepreneurial ventures.
