miniEnterprize Youth Entrepreneurship Conference

miniEnterprize Canada

Enterprize Canada is the biggest nation-wide student-run entrepreneurship organization started by students from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. Enterprize Canada has expanded its scope to high school students with the newly formed miniEnterprize Youth Entrepreneurship Conference. The vision is to foster the entrepreneurial spirit within youth and empower them to take initiative by creating an interactive environment capable of inspiring and nurturing innovative ideas.

Taking place Saturday, November 27th from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the Forestry Sciences Centre at UBC, The miniEnterprize Youth Entrepreneurship Conference strives not only to inspire students and instill the concept of entrepreneurship, but also to teach basic entrepreneurial skills through interactive workshops and activities. Most importantly, the conference aid in building and sustaining connections and dialogue between their participants and current leaders in our economy.

miniEnterprize 2010 will engage over 200 high school students across the Lower Mainland in themes relevant to today’s youth development in the business world. The conference consists of three keynote speaker presentations, an innovation challenge with a judging panel (I’m one of the judges) and two workshop sessions where delegates can choose from a variety of interesting sectors.

I will be presenting a workshop on The Fast and Furious World of Social Media. The cost of attending the conference is only $20 and includes lunch. Extremely affordable but you have to keep in mind that this conference is for high school students and Enterprize Canada is a non profit. I am not charging them anything to do my presentation.

If you’re a high school student in Vancouver and want to explore the world of business, then I look forward to meeting you at miniEnterprize 2010.

    Sounds like an excellent opportunity for HS students around the Vancouver area to get a jump-start into the business world. You’re a pretty good guy John, not just taking, but always giving back.

    I would like to know whether there would be a live streaming or even a recording so we could watch afterward?

    What a great way to give back! I’m sure this will inspire quite a few entrepreneurs! It’s important to learn the eight skills at a young age so you can retire young! 🙂
