Entrepreneurship

The Program

Elementary

This project aims to introduce students to the field of entrepreneurship by making them live through the organization of an entrepreneurial project. The students will, in fact, carry out all the stages of creating a major event, with the goal of adding value within their school environment or community. Throughout the project, the students will develop knowledge related to the field of entrepreneurship such as entrepreneurial vocabulary and the development of financial and promotional plans, while learning to carry out an entrepreneurial project from start to finish.

Elementary & Secondary

This program aims to introduce students to the field of entrepreneurship by letting them experience the day-to-day reality of a business that operates in a field they are passionate about. Looking to create a business that will be an added value to their neighbourhood or school community, students take on every step involved in its creation. Throughout the project, students improve their grasp of business-related knowledge, such as its vocabulary as well as financial and promotional plan development, while learning to manage the day-to-day operations of a business.

Les élèves expriment souvent le souhait de créer une première entreprise et de mieux comprendre leur fonctionnement et le métier d’entrepreneur.

Nos coordonnateurs de projet, pour la plupart étudiants universitaires dans les facultés de gestion, travaillent avec cette relève entrepreneuriale en les aidant à découvrir  leurs forces et leurs talents afin de les motiver à poursuivre leurs études.

Tout au long de l’année, par le biais de différents ateliers et différents défis animés par des mentors de l’industrie, les jeunes explorent entre autres les différentes étapes d’un plan d’affaires :

  • le projet
  • l’étude de marché
  • le plan marketing
  • le plan des ressources humaines et des opérations
  • le plan financier
  • la livraison d’un plan d’affaires complet
