Associate Professor
Waterloo
Scott C. Ensign, PhD, is an Associate Professor, Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. He has served on the faculties of state universities in California and Ohio as well as several universities in Canada. He is a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship and has received accolades for his contributions to teaching and research. His current research examines economic, community, and social development in remote regions—such as Canada’s far North. Much of this involves the study of market entry and expansion. Projects have included: commercialization of green/clean technologies; integration of scientific know-how when company cultures merge; social networks of entrepreneurs; small firm-large firm cooperation vs. competition; and social entrepreneurship.

Ensign has co-edited Settlements at the Edge (2016) which consider economic and community development in remote regions – such as the far North. Ensign has presented workshops on new venture creation to Indigenous, immigrant, and visible monitories. Some recent talks include: Entrepreneurship and innovation at the edge – Creating inducements for people and place; Big ideas for small towns – Community revitalization; and Makerspaces in non-urban communities – Grassroots innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.
