This month's topic: How to Create Your Own Startup

Overview

Fireball Chats with Alumni give the McMaster Engineering community the opportunity to chat to a small group of students and share their personal experiences as an engineer in the workforce. Our hope is that we can offer our students a face-to-face mentoring program where they have the chance to have a casual conversation with engineers during which they can ask for advice, help, or insight.
