QUÉBEC CITY, Nov. 3, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ – Registration is now open for the 19th edition of the OSEntreprendre Challenge!
Through its Student Entrepreneurship Division, which recognizes young people ranging from elementary school all the way to university, and its Business Creation division, which supports new entrepreneurs, the OSEntreprendre Challenge draws about 40 000 participants each year and is an invitation to budding entrepreneurs to realize their dreams and ambitions. A tremendous sense of pride along with $600 000 in cash prizes are the rewards on offer for the winners at the local, regional and provincial levels. The provincial winners in the two main divisions will be announced at the Desjardins Grand Prize Gala, which will be held in Québec City on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.
In addition, through the new “Entrepreneurship, I’m up for the Challenge” campaign, all participants in the OSEntreprendre Challenge have access to a set of visibility tools (badges, stickers, posters, etc.) that will enable them to proudly promote their initiatives. Dominique Brown, President of Chocolats Favoris, will once again act as this year’s spokesperson, daring all participants to rise to the Challenge and change the world!
