Every year, the Successful Business Inc. section acknowledges entrepreneurs in every region that are still in business after more than five years and whose track record boasts the following five ingredients of success: achievements, values, finances, forecasts and teamwork. These entrepreneurs are also invited to touch base with the OSEntreprendre Challenge in order to share their inspirational journey and foster the spirit of entrepreneurship everywhere in Québec!
