After being recognized as the #1 University Linked Business Accelerator in the world, YEDI was contacted by several Canadian and International universities who expressed an interest to implement YEDI programming in their respective institutions. Currently, YEDI is working on implementing its programming in 4 Canadian universities and 10 international universities.

Most notably, Russian University of Economics which is the country’s oldest and largest economics university, created a new department within the university to implement YEDI’s programming. The department of Global Finance and Small Business Development by York Entrepreneurship Development Institute (Canada), will deliver YEDI’s programming to both local and international entrepreneurs.

YEDI believes that academia has no borders and is proud to envision a future where business leaders from both Canada and Russia who complete YEDI’s programming will better understand each other and flourish in a global economy.
