As you read this, millions of people all over the world are championing entrepreneurship in celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW). From small workshops in rural communities to gala events in major metropolises, to online initiatives, GEW activities are taking place in more than 100 countries simultaneously.

CYBF is honoured to be the official host of GEW Canada and we want you to join us celebrating entrepreneurship in your community throughout this global movement. Visit the activities calendar on to find out what sort of events are taking place in your area. Follow @gewcanada on Twitter or on Facebook, or take part in one of our online activities like Show Us Your Entrepreneur or the Great Canadian Mentoring Challenge.

I’d also like to invite you to vote in one of our new 2010 CYBF Chairman’s Awards categories. The CYBF: People’s Choice Award is an online competition of incredible videos created by CYBF entrepreneurs battling for the most votes before November 19.  The winner receives a prize package valued at $5,000.

Take a few minutes to watch the videos and vote for your favourite, then spread the word to your networks and through your social media platforms to show your support for CYBF entrepreneurs. Be a part of the CYBF award experience!

Until next time,


Get up to $60,000
