Centre for Redemptive Entrepreneurship

Centre for Redemptive Entrepreneurship

at Tyndale University

The Centre for Redemptive Entrepreneurship (CRE) is a creative engine for Canadian redemptive entrepreneurship – to equip, support, and mentor emerging innovators motivated by their faith to shape culture through entrepreneurship.

Let's get connected...

Christian entrepreneurs, particularly younger generations, have great potential to shape culture through businesses aligned with the biblical principles of stewardship and restoration. With the CRE, we are beginning a movement to reclaim the public square across Canada, demonstrating our faith in all spheres of God's kingdom.
