My Top 3 Observations as Chair of The Startup Awards

As Chair of the Startup Canada Startup awards, I have just finished reviewing many of the many more applications for the 2017 awards, here are my top 3 observations:

1) Young people are seeing entrepreneurship as a profession and I’m seeing that they understand how to merge a diverse set of experiences, focus and education into an entrepreneurial career.

2) Social enterprises, non-social startups and CSR programs are melding to form a mindset of using business to make a positive difference in people’s lives, perhaps one day there will be little difference between them as they will all view businesses as solving the problems of the world.

3) Once the entrepreneurial culture and tool set takes root in a country then a diverse set of opportunities starts to appear for citizens to utilize.
