The Canadian Youth Business Foundation has selected 30 dynamic young Canadian entrepreneurs to form the official Canadian delegation at the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) in Nice, France on October 31-November 2, 2011. The G20 YES is an annual international summit that brings together dedicated and influential entrepreneurs of the G20 countries. François Baron is a Canadian delegate.
Why did I become an entrepreneur:
I am an entrepreneur because I am a creative person who likes challenges and dealing with people. I decided to step in to this adventure because it was imperative for me to try something new by myself. I developed the concept of my business because there was something missing in our actual market. Today, a lot of companies are copying what we did but we continue to go further.
My best moment as an entrepreneur, my success:
Still being in business after 6 years, a lot of difficulties and delivering a brand new product after 2 years of development
My next challenge:
After successes in my province (Québec) and particularly in Montréal, I want to expand in other countries and in the rest of Canada. And it’s already started.
