Bizcraft (facebook), craft your future. Youth entrepreneurship.
I was invited to be a keynote speaker at the first Bizcraft (facebook) event, BIZCRAFT 2.0 (facebook). It was setup to inspire youth entrepreneurship in my home town of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada and held at the Western Counties Regional Library:
In their own words:
BIZCRAFT supports youth in entrepreneurship and social enterprise. It is a community-based initiative promoting health in South West Nova Scotia.
Much thanks goes out to Stephen Paquette, who also served as a speaker with an excellent background in technologies from work at Research In Motion. As well, thanks goes to Sarah Gagnon for organizing the entire event and to Angela Taylor and Costa Zafiris (an entrepreneur himself with Peanut) of CEED for running the event.
Unfortunately, I have no photographs. I am scheduled to be interviewed with Stephen Paquette on CJLS and will update about this event more then!
Stephen Paquette and I are interviewed by CJLS on Bizcraft!
That is all!
