Youth Entrepreneur Program

Stay tuned for details for 2016…

We are excited to again offer the Youth Entrepreneur Program as part of the Kivalliq Trade Show. With support from Kivalliq Partners in Development we look forward to engaging Kivalliq youth to participate in the annual program.

This year we welcome back, inspirational, motivational speaker, Dave Anderson of Moving Millennials and Joelle Foster from Canadian Youth Business Foundation (Winnipeg, Manitoba). Sponsored/Selected participants will be engaged in a two-day workshop which will focus on business planning, the importance of credit and how to start a new business. The program’s goal is to help Kivalliq youth develop skills and understanding of business development and entrepreneurship. The program will benefit participants who are interested in entrepreneurship and learning about running a business.
