The Young Entrepreneurs Conference (YEC) started in 2012 as a platform to launch the spearhead for creating an opportunity for young professionals to engage in meaningful discussions about business, technology, and entrepreneurship. Since then, the conference has grown from its young roots at UofT and has seen increasing attendance year over year due to its curation of quality and experience.
YEC’18 is bringing together innovative students from universities across Ontario who are interested in developing and implementing solutions in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development. YEC attracts a demographic of intelligent, curious and skilled post-secondary students. These students are interested in networking, putting their skills to the test, finding mentors and discovering new opportunities.
The conference topics appeal to a range of audiences - all of which take part in the emerging fintech, digital marketing and educational organizations in the social entrepreneurship community. We will explore this common theme and its development in the organizations’ practices.
