Thomson Reuters Invests in the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
Thomson Reuters partnered with Canada’s University of Waterloo to “fuel breakthroughs in data science and develop the next generation of global entrepreneurial leaders,” according to the press release. During the next 5 years, these organizations will provide a variety of initiatives, including establishing a Thomson Reuters-funded Research Chair in Data Cleaning From Theory to Practice (filled initially by Ihab F. Ilyas, a computer science professor at Waterloo, who researches new methods of storing, cleaning, and curating data), allowing students and researchers at the Faculty of Mathematics and the School of Accounting and Finance at Waterloo to access Thomson Reuters Eikon (so they can use financial data in real-world markets), and collaborating on the Problem Lab (a new program that helps students find and understand problems, preparing them for entrepreneurship).
