Why is the world’s #1 Ranked University Business Accelerator, YEDI, at Web Summit?


Now with me today, I’m joined by Marat Ressin. Marat runs a very successful institute called the YEDI Institute that has locations across
the GTA and specifically one in the City of Vaughan. Marat, first of all why don’t you tell us
a little bit about YEDI and what you guys do. Sure! YEDI is York Entrepreneurship Development
Institute and it’s a university and business accelerator, which runs different programs at Schulich School of Business at York University. We have different business accelerator campuses
and one of them is located in the City of Vaughan And so Marat, why don’t you tell us about
a recent successful award that you guys achieved? Yeah this year we were ranked as the #1 university
business accelerator in the world. Wow. As I always say to my students business is
like a tree if it’s not growing it’s dead. And YEDI always tries to grow and today my
most important goal is to make sure that YEDI grows to Western Europe. We are very well represented in Asia, Eastern
Europe, Latin America, and so on. And Western Europe is our next step to make sure we will
provide soft landing opportunities for European companies that want to come to North American
market. And Canada is a great gateway to North America. And for Canadian startups to go to European
markets.
