NextUp with Amor Provins
Fri, Feb 2 2018
NextUp hosts some of Edmonton's greatest business leaders in an intimate setting, giving you the ultimate experience. Join us and Amor Provins, senior manager of MacEwan University's Roundhouse, for a Q&A discussion.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Amor Provins is a multi-talented entrepreneur, product designer and community change-maker. She runs Hunt Amor, one of Alberta’s most recognized custom jewelry brands, known for its bold designs and minimalist approach. Amor spent eight years working in the social sector, focused on aiding homeless and at-risk youth, through rural, urban and international communities, including Australia. As one of the founding members of Apricity (a collective working to amplify the cause of others by raising awareness and funds for non-profits) and an instrumental contributor in the creation of Timbre Studios (a co-working space open to designers, artists and other creatives), Amor continues to actively display social consciousness in her progressive business practices. Now, she’ll be putting that experience to good use as she leads the launch of MacEwan’s own entrepreneurial incubator, the social innovation hub Roundhouse.
