Entrepreneurship in North Bay

May 9, 2009



Ben speaking at The Capital Centre


Ben speaking at Almaguin Secondary School

This past week, I was invited to share my entrepreneurial journey and tips with 1000 high school student in North Bay and the surrounding regions. I spoke about  how young people do not need to wait until later in their lives to begin their own businesses, but have all of the skills and ideas right now. I touched on themes such as how to start a firm with limited capital, how to develop mentors, and ultimately, how questioning your mentors means that you have developed a unique business idea. The Business Centre Nipissing Parry Sound hosted the two events to promote their programs that foster youth entrepreneurship, such as Summer Company (co-presented with The Ministry of Small Business and Consumer Services) that provide business training and grants to students who want to begin summer businesses. A big thank you to Anna Iati and Neal Kelly for their hospitality.
