Olivia joined the NEXT Canada team in November 2016. Filling a variety of communications and public relations roles, she has spent her career to date working at organizations with missions that aim to support entrepreneurship and innovation in Canada. She has been fortunate to work alongside many talented entrepreneurs and is motivated by the passion they possess for what they do and, more importantly, why they do it. Most recently Olivia worked at the University of Toronto’s central entrepreneurship office, representing the interests of nine campus-linked accelerators, the largest cluster of CLAs in Canada.
Olivia has completed her BA in Communications at Carleton University followed by a postgraduate degree in Corporate Communications at Sheridan College. She cares about supporting local startups, clean design and making sure there are no spelling/grammar mistakes in important documents.
