Dryden Gould- My Introduction to Entrepreneurship

Who Is Dryden Gould


Hi, I’m Dryden Gould! I am currently attending Acadia University, going into my fourth year of Business Administration. Attending Acadia felt natural as I spent my childhood in this awesome area and many friends from high school were headed towards the mysterious university life at Acadia as well.

For me, I never really considered the idea of being an entrepreneur but rather following the traditional route of completing an undergraduate and then going to a 9-5 job for a large organization. Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this path but in my introduction to entrepreneurship, I’ve realized there are other routes that can be equally as satisfying. Fortunately, my introduction to entrepreneurship was one through the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre, which has allowed me to learn a lot about what entrepreneurship entails.


Co-op Opportunity  


As a student currently enrolled in the Acadia University co-op program, I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to land my first co-op work term with the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre (AEC). I have been and will continue to be positioned as the marketing assistant for launchbox, the student branch of the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre. This opportunity will continue to allow myself to understand, develop an entrepreneurial mindset, and build on my personal skillset. While continuing to build an understanding of entrepreneurship, I will also be looking to improve upon my professional skillsets to ensure that I can maximize my effectiveness with the AEC and beyond. Fortunately, I will have the opportunity to continue to develop these skills and new skills as the AEC has graciously allowed me to return for summer employment.
