TORONTO, ON – Toronto is internationally recognized as a world-leading hub of entrepreneurship and start-up businesses. With an extraordinary talent pool, globally significant industry clusters, and excellent post-secondary institutions located in the Toronto metropolitan region, Toronto offers a rich environment for innovation and entrepreneurship. Our region’s next great challenge is to build on this momentum by training and developing more entrepreneurs.
Two champions of young entrepreneurs at the University of Toronto have embraced the imperative. Cynthia Goh and Ajay Agrawal are challenging the myth of accidental and innate entrepreneurship and demonstrating the economic value of training Canada’s next generation of entrepreneurs. They will share their experience at a Toronto Board of Trade panel discussion, part of the Distinguished Speak Series, on Friday, November 23, 2012.
