Welcome to Futurpreneur Canada We have been fueling the entrepreneurial passions of Canada's enterprising youth for nearly two decades. Founded in 1996 as the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, we are the only national, non-profit organization providing a full spectrum of financing, mentoring and support tools.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world's largest celebration of entrepreneurship!
Through events and activities, we celebrate the success of entrepreneurs and inspire more people to follow their passion and choose entrepreneurship as a career. From November 18 to 24, 2013, Canadians will come together to celebrate GEW Canada.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) is the official host of GEW in Canada, and we want you to get involved! Spread the word through social media, become a sponsor, attend an event in your community, or become a GEW Canada partner and host your own event or activity.
For the second year, this national tournament was held in celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week Canada (GEW Canada) to provide an opportunity for every Canadian over 16 years to engage with, connect to and see the value of entrepreneurship in their lives. Tournament participants used the everyday household object at the centre of this tournament -- an egg carton -- to create new value. These are the some of the finalists whose innovations rose to the top!
In celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011, Canadians used creativity and imagination to create new value out of an ordinary coffee cup. These are some of the amazing innovations that were submitted for the YOU Innovate Canada tournament.
