BDC’s Young Entrepreneur Awards

The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) is looking for top business entrepreneurs aged 19 to 35 from across Canada for the 2008 Young Entrepreneur Awards (YEA). Thirteen award winners, one from each province and territory, will be recognized for their business and leadership accomplishments.

YEA winners will be selected by a panel of entrepreneurs, members of Chambers of Commerce and BDC representatives. Selection criteria includes the originality of the business concept, its success, growth potential, and the entrepreneur’s social involvement. The panel also considers the entrepreneur’s age when the business was started and any special challenges that were overcome.

If you’re interested, don’t be shy and nominate yourself. You’ve got one week to get your paperwork in – nominations must be received by May 30th.
