In 2021 "How to start a business", beat "How to get a job" in Google global search queries (Inc., 2021). In Canada, specifically, there has been a resurgence of entrepreneurship since 2014, driven mainly by younger and older Canadians, immigrants and women (BDC, 2019). While many young Canadians are interested in starting their own businesses often times they don't know where to start. This CACEE webinar is designed for career counsellors who are supporting youth interested in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career pathway. The webinar will provide an overview of free entrepreneurship programs and resources, supported by RBC Future Launch, available for young people. Additionally, in conversation with panelists from League of Innovators and Futurpreneur, this session will dive into some of the truths and misconceptions of entrepreneurship as a career pathway for young people.
Focus on Entrepreneurship is presented by CACEE, with support from RBC Future Launch, as a part of the 2023 'At the Forefront' Webinar Series. Click here to learn more about and register for the other webinars in the series.
