CDÉNÉ supports youth entrepreneurship working closely with the Université Sainte-Anne and the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP). Initiatives include:

  • Networking activities where students meet and develop a deeper understanding of local entrepreneurs
  • Business Pitch competitions – students present entrepreneurial ideas to “Dragons” from the business world to get advice and to potentially obtain funding for their initiatives
  • Mentoring young people to support the development of entrepreneurial thought process or mindset
  • Entrepreneurship boot camps for students from Grades 4 to 6 with the Écoles Plus (Schools Plus) team of the CSAP
  • Workshops for youth on current topics related to entrepreneurship
