“At Bridgehead, we are very excited to be entering into a new educational partnership with Carleton University,” says Tracey Clark, chief culture officer at Bridgehead. “The Sprott School of Business is embarking on initiatives in sustainability and social enterprise – all things that make the planet better – and that’s what we’ve been working on since Bridgehead was founded nearly 40 years ago.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Bridgehead Coffee,” says Dana Brown, dean of the Sprott School of Business. “As a business school, we need to be preparing the next generation of business influencers to really think differently about how they set up their business, to consider their social impact and the well-being of society. Working with Bridgehead will give us a great opportunity to profile a business that has social impact, a positive effect on its community, and that is led by a dynamic, female entrepreneur.”

The partnership is bringing a Bridgehead Coffeehouse onto the Carleton campus in the Nicol Building – the future home of the Sprott School of Business currently under construction and expected to open in winter 2021.

Through this partnership, Sprott is writing a case study on Bridgehead that can be used in many different business courses, including entrepreneurship, marketing, business strategy, operations and supply chain management. The partnership also provides opportunities to collaborate on strategic events focused on sustainability and social innovation and to bring Bridgehead leaders to campus as class speakers, among others.
