Five Journeys In Entrepreneurship

Tuesday, May 31, 2016    7:00 - 8:45 p.m.
Newmarket Public Library's Multi-Purpose Room

 Many of us share the dream of owning a business yet only a small number (roughly 5%) actually turn their passion into full-time careers. At the next IdeaMarket session we’ll try to answer the question: what does it take to be an entrepreneur in today’s highly competitive environment? We’ll hear from five local entrepreneurs about their challenges and successes:

Derrol Salmon from York Region Makers   •   Belle Yuan from Strategywise HR
Linda Elming-Freda from Office Time Savers   • Shelly Cyr from Synfini Works
Doug Crann from Workplace Safety Revolution Inc.
