Lauren won over the competition’s judges and the audience, made up of top students from across the country, by giving a short, five-minute speech about the story behind TalentEgg, why it’s such a valuable service for students and employers, and why we’ve been so successful as a business so far.
I spoke as a representative of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, which has provided me (and 2700 other entrepreneurs) with startup capital and- more importantly- invaluable support and mentoring.
My speech was brutally honest. I spoke of the successes of TalentEgg as a business, and the sometimes juxtaposing experiences I’ve had as an entrepreneur running the business.
This, of course, has got me thinking more on entrepreneurship.
