Start Me Up
This program challenges students in grades seven and eight, as well as Secondary School students to identify a real business opportunity for themselves and their community, by exploring needs and problem solving. The culminating activity is a pitch to local entrepreneurs where prizes are awarded.
This workshop offers an opportunity for like-minded youth to experience business start up in one day and links to community resources for participants interested in pursuing their idea.
How it works?
The Head Start In Business staff facilitate exercises in idea generation and creative thinking and participants then apply what they have learned to create a business pitch. The workshop is usually a full day and can be offered in both official languages.
Students can win prizes for their business idea and pitch!
