Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES)
The Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES) brings young Aboriginal entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-to-be together with business leaders and role models to help them build the skills, knowledge and networks they need to be the business leaders of tomorrow.
The three-day event is challenge-based. Teams of delegates participate in a series of competitions designed to help build skills and gain valuable business knowledge. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams.
Delegates have ample opportunity to mingle with First Nation, Canadian and international business leaders and role models in a setting that provides an optimum mix of mentoring, networking, competition, and fun.
