Diversified models of entrepreneurs, students and teachers
QUÉBEC CITY, February 5, 2020 – OSEntreprendre invites you to learn about the journeys of fifteen women who have taken part in the OSEntreprendre Challenge. Go to osentreprendre.quebec and let yourself be inspired by the human adventure of these entrepreneurs, and by those of the students and teachers who have adopted Education Through Entrepreneurial Spirit.
“It’s the idea of the virtuous circle: we need to showcase models of entrepreneurs from all backgrounds so that young women can see their own potential and take steps to achieve it. Fortunately, there is no lack of fine examples here in Québec," says the ambassador of the project Inspiring Routes of Québec Women, Michèle Boisvert, Delegate General of Québec in France.
Isabelle Charest, Minister for Education and Minister Responsible for the Status of Women, points out that, “there are still too many women in Québec who have qualms about going into business. However, a glance at the statistics shows that businesses operated by women are quite successful. The OSEntreprendre Challenge shines the spotlight on women who have helped, through their example, to promote women’s entrepreneurship throughout Québec!”
“For over 20 years, OSEntreprendre has witnessed the practices of thousands of school stakeholders who have rivalled one another in ingenuity in making more young people aware of the human adventure of entrepreneurship. These profiles of Québec women are an additional tool they can use to continue having an exceptional impact, contribute to young people’s entrepreneurial culture and, who knows, motivate them to carry out projects of their own,” says Manon Théberge, President and Director General of OSEntreprendre.
OSEntreprendre has a mission: to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship in order to help build a proud, innovative,committed and prosperous Québec. Recognizing the human adventure of entrepreneurship and encouragingEducation Through Entrepreneurial Spirit in Schools characterize its actions. The project Inspiring Routes of Québec Women was developed by OSEntreprendre and is an initiative of the Secrétariat à la condition féminine that receives support from the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.
