Excellence in Youth EntrepreneurshipPosted: 07/05/2009
It is going to be a long day. Mid-week parties are exhausting!
Last night, Soak was honoured with the award for Excellence in Youth Entrepreneurship.
The event was held at the Granite Club. Suhana Meharchand (CBC) was the Emcee for the lovely evening. We heard from the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Minister of Small Business and Consumer Services, Louise Russo and several members of the Toronto Business Development Centre’s Board of Directors and Staff.
I enjoyed seeing old friends from when the Soak office was at the TBDC building as well as new friends from our current business ventures. All of the finalists deserve recognition for their hard work, dedication and exceptional businesses.
We enjoyed the Silent Auction- with proceeds going towards the creation of the New Opportunities Incubator- designed to help entrepreneurs with disabilities start and grow successful business ventures. I purchased a wine tasting trip to a a Niagara area vineyard. That will be a lovely summer outing for our staff and those who work endlessly to support our business.
