CYBF’s flagship initiative for GEW Canada: the YOU Innovate Canada tournament has officially begun with the unveiling of the secret everyday household object…an egg carton!
If you haven’t already heard, The YOU Innovate Canada tournament will show you that the spark of a great business idea simply comes from looking at an ordinary thing in an extraordinary way, an entrepreneurial way.
Eligible participants are asked to turn their minds to creating new value out of the everyday object and will use an egg carton(s) as the raw material to create a new innovation, define its value and submit a brief video about their innovation for the chance to win cash awards and a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the 2013 Global Entrepreneurship Congress!
Deadline for submissions is October 15, 2012.
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international movement designed to inspire millions of young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity in entrepreneurship. For the second year and in celebration of GEW Canada, CYBF is organizing YOU Innovate Canada, a creative, youthful and energetic national tournament that enables Canadians, aged 16 and older to engage with, connect to and see the value of entrepreneurship in their everyday lives. The tournament sparks great business ideas by challenging participants to look at things in different ways.
