Entrepreneurship

2016 Jeunes d’affaires Gala

As part of the campaign Devenir entrepreneur propelled by the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, Desjardins Group and National Bank, Youth Fusion has created a major project called JEUNES D’AFFAIRES, to enable hundreds of young elementary and high school students to develop entrepreneurial projects in class and after school throughout the school year.

June 1, 2016, at the Bonsecours Market, the project culminated with a unique experience. Each team was facing scenarios replicating the challenges of a young business: communications, advertising, customer relations, financial management, business development and obviously… the unexpected! They have also benefited from the valuable advice of the LNI Theatre to present their business with conviction in front of a renowned jury.

Congratulations to all the participants, felicitations to all the winners and thank you to our valued partners!
