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 our collective 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 health innovation 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 14 Board members are entrepreneurs, including three young entrepreneurs who received Futurpreneur’s support in launching businesses (BiogeniQ, Kiwetin Clothing and Knix) that have achieved transformational impact in their sectors or communities.

Board of Directors demographics:

  • Five members (36%) who identify as Black, Indigenous or a person of colour
  • Seven women (50%), six men (43%) and one member who identifies as gender-fluid
  • 50% of members were under 40 years old when they joined the Board
  • Members live in six provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec
  • One member identifies as 2SLGBTQIA+
  • One member identifies as living with disabilities

Our Board’s collective experience evolves as members complete their terms and we recruit new members.
