Welcome to our Newest Members
The EPICentre is pleased to announce the newest additions to our team, Andrew D'Agostini our  Social Enterprise Coordinator and Clarke Gallie our  EPIC Makers' Base & Social Enterprise Coordinator. Find out more about them below. 

Meet  Andrew D'Agostini
Andrew D'Agostini is currently in the process of finishing his final year as an Odette Business student with aspirations of pursuing a Masters of Management degree at the University of Windsor. Andrew's role as a member of the Epic Team unites local charities in the Windsor-Essex region with influential workshop leaders who assist in the identification process highlighting social innovation as the benchmark for exponential success and continued growth. Andrew has a strong passion regarding the future of entrepreneurial initiatives within the Windsor community and believes his effort will contribute to EPICentre's mission as a true mentor and catalyst for entrepreneurship, practice, and innovation. Andrew can be found spending most of his free time at the EPICentre facilities and would love nothing more than to help the aspiring entrepreneur find a way to start something new.

Meet Clarke Gallie
Clarke Gallie comes from a Finance and Computer Science background and is on track to complete his bachelors from the University of Windsor at the end of this year. Throughout his University career, Clarke has gained extensive knowledge in computer programming, financial models, social enterprises, and great business acumen. After a successful exit working on his own business through the EPICentre's Founder's program, he has found his passion in helping others bring their creativity, ideas, and vision into reality. You can often find him at networking events, working with startups out of the EPICentre, or helping others design and prototype their models in the EPIC Maker's Base.
