Mentors help strengthen the entrepreneurial spirit in Canada by sharing their experiences, advice and support. At the Futurpreneur Canada, we value all of our volunteer mentors and are pleased to recognize their tremendous contributions to the future of young entrepreneurs and their businesses.
Featured success story
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Kevin says it doesn’t take a lot of time to make a huge difference in helping a young entrepreneur become successful. “I’ve always believed that providing a powerful vision of the future is the most important legacy we can give to our youth…”
Special thanks from Futurpreneur Canada entrepreneurs
|“Our mentor’s enterprise-level marketing background was a critical part of meeting our goal. Without Jeff Ryzner, (Futurpreneur Canada mentor), we would not be where we are today.”|
|“My Futurpreneur Canada mentor [Bob Manning]…helped guide me through tough challenges and opened doors that otherwise weren’t accessible. A mentor helps you with that third level of ignorance – the stuff you don’t know that you don’t know – because they’ve been there and done it. My mentor helped tremendously!”|
