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. Ken LeBlanc is a Canadian delegate.
Why did I become an entrepreneur:
Like Lady Gaga says… “I was born this way”. My business basically started with an idea – use technology to change the way people buy and sell homes in Canada to create a better real estate experience. Armed with less than $100 in my pocket and a start-up loan from CYBF, the business was launched.
My best moment as an entrepreneur, my success:
Stepping back and looking at my business, every single day of this journey has been rewarding. Knowing where it all started ($100 and an idea) and seeing over 110 franchise locations coast to coast with over 350 people employed and listing thousands and thousands of homes each year is pretty exciting.
My next challenge:
My next challenge is to grow the PropertyGuys.com model both internally (with more offerings) and internationally (with more locations).
