NEOnet once again participated in this second year’s Biz Battle hosted by Northern College’s Entrepreneur Center and co-hosted by Head Start in Business. Paul Ouimette participated as a judge. The event is a weekend business boot camp that provided opportunities for young entrepreneurs to gain real-world business experience and to network with like-minded youth and other businesses. There were many young entrepreneurs in attendance (15), with some attendees from College Boreal, and a Mary Long-Irvin from Northern Ontario Angels.
Brianna Humphries was this year’s keynote speaker, describing her entrepreneurial adventure and experience with Radical Gardens. The winner was Fancis Caron, a student of Business Administration at Collège Boréal, Kapuskasing Campus, and second place was awarded to Hassan Mamouni and Abdel Kader from the University of Hearst with H&A Packaging. We congratulate all the participants for attending this event.
