Creative Destruction Lab Atlantic

Build Something Massive with the Creative Destruction Lab

The Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) is a seed-stage program for massively scalable, science-based companies, which employs an objectives-based mentoring process with the goal of maximizing equity-value creation. Launched at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management in August 2012, CDL Atlantic’s program began at the Rowe School of Business in September 2017. 

The year-long MBA course provides a transformational experience for Dalhousie MBA students by replacing the traditional case study method with experiential learning (learning-by-doing) during the process of rapid equity-value creation. Working alongside the G7 Fellows and venture founders, students are given a unique chance to learn how to evaluate, finance, and manage technology businesses.

Dalhousie MBA students play a vital role at the Creative Destruction Lab by providing aspiring entrepreneurs with the strategic insights they need to turn their research innovations into high-growth ventures.
