We are incredibly grateful to our Board of Directors for their volunteer contributions to Canada’s inclusive prosperity, as they guide Futurpreneur’s work helping diverse, young entrepreneurs launch successful businesses. Read about Futurpreneur’s commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

Futurpreneur Board members are leaders across a broad variety of sectors, from food wholesale and services to retail and consumer products to education to financial services and lending, and more. Some have founded and led sole proprietorships and small businesses, others have built or are leaders in multi-billion-dollar enterprises.

Ten of our 15 Board members are entrepreneurs – among them, one whose business was launched with Futurpreneur’s start-up support and is now a well-known brand with global sales. Several members have been Futurpreneur mentors.

• 4 BIPOC members (27%): one Black member, one Indigenous member, one Métis member and one member who is a Person of Colour
