Entrepreneuriat Québec is the result of collaboration between visionary community advocates from different school boards who, in 1994, wanted to share working and teaching methods in addition to resources for the Ministry of Education’s Lancement d’une entreprise program that began in 1992. Over the next years, there were many revisions of the Lancement d’une entreprise course all with the objective of making it increasingly more efficient, relevant, flexible and adaptable to the situation of each participant. They also added an English version Starting a business in addition to the Gérer efficacement mon entreprise (Managing my business) program which aims to offer continuing education for entrepreneurs already in business and who want to improve their knowledge and effectiveness in managing their businesses.
I believe that all people hold within themselves the capacity to follow and accomplish their dreams as long as they believe in themselves and have the right tools at hand. This conviction is what continues to push this organisation to constantly innovate for the success of all. The impressive annual growth of our pool of entrepreneurs, which to-date is over 5,000 people, inspires us to go further and do more for the coming years!
We offer our thanks to all entrepreneurs for having the daring and courage to go into business and to be successful. You validate our existence and allow us to do what we do best together: to prepare the next generation of Quebec’s entrepreneurs for tomorrow!”
