Business students contribute to Youth Entrepreneurship evening

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — Students in the Administration Affairs Sector at the University of Moncton, Edmundston Campus contributed to the success of Youth Entrepreneurship Evening, organized by CBDC Madawaska on Oct. 21.

Presented at the UMCE, the evening focused on the recognition of youth entrepreneurship and concluded with the  Young Entrepreneur Madawaska 2019 prize. The honor was awarded to Annie-Claude Morin, Karine Bonenfant and Bruno Duguay , company owners of Physio Multi-Care BDM.

To highlight the activities that took place during the day in different schools of the Northwest Francophone School District, a few projects were presented in the first part of the evening. Among them was the unveiling of a coloring book prototype realized by students from kindergarten to grade in schools in the region. Twenty students were in attendance to present their drawing. One of the projects was also emphasized, “Stand in Action”, which was launched during the entrepreneurship camps just a few months. Students from Ernest Lang Community School St. Francois de Madawaska came to present their entrepreneurial table center project. A young entrepreneur Myriam Duff, talked about his company and Heidi Bossé, one of six entrepreneurs, presented his company to elementary school students earlier in the day.

The main objective of this new formula was to include young people from 5 to 34 years in the Small Business Week to present their entrepreneurship. Today’s youth will be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. CBDC Madawaska aims to promote entrepreneurial development among young people to provide them with the tools they need to walk in that direction.
