WE Are Social Entrepreneurs Program

RBC Future Launch and WE are proud to bring the WE Are Social Entrepreneurs Program to today’s youth, empowering them with the tools to become tomorrow’s leaders.

We invited young Canadians to gather with like-minded youth in a series of conferences, to learn the basics of social entrepreneurship and provide the support they need to turn their ideas into reality. We hosted a total of 12 in-person and virtual conferences across the country.

Check back soon for Fall/Winter 2019-2020 conference dates!

Now it’s time to take that idea further with an opportunity to participate in a virtual one-week WE Are Social Entrepreneurs Incubation Hub Program.

As part of the Incubation Hub Program, you’ll get to:

  • Develop and build your social entrepreneurship skills
  • Learn how to build a business plan
  • Pitch your idea to a panel of industry professionals
  • Receive one-on-one mentorship from industry experts
  • Connect and share ideas with like-minded youth across Canada
