ThriveNorth is an initiative to enhance entrepreneurship opportunities and empower youth in the Northwest region of British Columbia. It connects young people, 18-39 years old, to business resources, financing and mentoring with the goal of inspiring and supporting them as they launch and grow businesses.
Managed by Futurpreneur Canada, ThriveNorth was launched in November 2014 through a five-year partnership established by Youth Business International (YBI), a global non-profit organization that supports international youth entrepreneurship initiatives.
Futurpreneur Canada is YBI's Canadian partner and has been supporting young, emerging business owners for 20 years. Through ThriveNorth, Futurpreneur Canada is expanding its offerings through local partnerships and community resources.
