Global Entrepreneurship Week: GEW 2009

Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009

As the ‘go to’ organization for youth entrepreneurship in Canada, Futurpreneur Canada championed Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009 with aggressive zest and passion. We engaged hundreds of organizations, tens of thousands of individuals and national media partners, to help build awareness of the vital importance of youth entrepreneurship in Canadian communities coast to coast.

From Canada’s West Coast of Vancouver, British Columbia to our East Coast in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canadians embraced this important global movement. They came together to celebrate the unrelenting passion, drive and commitment of young entrepreneurs, and helped to champion Canada’s next generation of business leaders and mentors.
