Discover your business potential with the support of ThriveNorth

Enhancing entrepreneurship opportunities and empowering youth in Northern British Columbia, ThriveNorth connects current and aspiring business owners, aged 18-39, to resources, financing and mentoring in order to inspire and support them as they launch and grow.
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 is YBI's Canadian partner and has been supporting young, emerging business owners for over 20 years.
Through ThriveNorth, Futurpreneur is expanding its offerings with the generous support of local partnerships and community resources. ThriveNorth is a joint initiative between Futurpreneur Canada, the Province of British Columbia, Futurpreneur Foundation, LNG Canada and TransCanada to empower and enhance entrepreneurship opportunities for young people.
