At the heart of Canadian society, young entrepreneurs work and dream. Risk-takers and trail-blazers, they exist to innovate. They are creative, productive and daring. They work hard, they give back and they play a vital role in Canada’s economy.
Advice, training and mentoring are essential tools for promoting entrepreneurial skills and spirit in potential and active entrepreneurs. Such tools are developing rapidly: they are very diverse and are provided by public, private, and non-profit organizations. In spite of the fact that there is not much evidence on the concrete impact of these tools, there are certain issues that might result in them failing to reach the target group. To avoid these problems, TEN was created, suggesting that services should be more focused on entrepreneurs rather than on businesses and should be better organized.
TEN is a global-minded entrepreneurial hub like many business incubators, accelerators and venture firms except it is client focused, comprehensive, customized, coordinated, connected, quality consistent and is becoming one of the critical ingredients of new strategies fostering and supporting entrepreneurship in Canada and the world based in Toronto, Ontario.
