The OSEntreprendre Challenge is a major Québec movement that acknowledges the entrepreneurial initiatives of thousands of participants each year, from young people from elementary school to university through its Scholastic section, and new entrepreneurs through its Business Creation section. It also showcases inspiring routes to success through its Successful Business Inc. section and exemplary purchasing practices prioritizing Québec suppliers through its Doing Business Together section.
The OSEntreprendre Challenge is deployed and takes root at the local, regional and provincial levels. More than 300 representatives are mobilized in all 17 regions of Québec to help shine the spotlight on projects in their communities.
