By now, you’ve heard a lot about Evening for Entrepreneurs. You know where it is, what it is, and how to get your tickets. Now I’d like to share with you the “WHY?”

My name is Amy and the idea for this event started in the deep caverns of my brain. With the help and support of my friends and colleagues it has developed into what we’re now calling, Evening for Entrepreneurs.

A little background on me – I’m an Entrepreneur and my mission is to end poverty.

I believe that it’s time for us to put an end to poverty, and create a world where everyone has, at the very least, their basic human needs met. Ending poverty can, and has to be done, but it means change. It means that we have to have the courage to make a difference. It means shifting the way our world operates. It means opening our eyes. Taking down the borders. Creating a world where EVERYone has the right and the means to create abundance for themselves, their families, and their communities. And, that’s just the start… Are you with me?

Ending poverty might seem impossible. It’s no small feat. So, how can we do this? I believe that entrepreneurship is the answer. Organizations, like Opportunity International, have the right idea. It’s not about giving hand-outs to the poor – that hasn’t worked yet so we need to change our approach. It’s about teaching the poor to create sustainable business’ for themselves, their families, and their communities. Over time, not only will they become more self-reliant, but they’ll do it with their pride and dignity intact.

I believe so strongly in this approach that I will be donating 50% of the proceeds from my event to Opportunity International Canada. The money raised will also be matched by a grant. This money will go directly to business training and micro-financing for the Entrepreneurial Poor around the world.

At the same time as helping Entrepreneurs around the world, you will have the opportunity to explore the world of Entrepreneurship for yourself! Because while on a larger scale, I believe Entrepreneurship will heal the world, I also believe that it will heal our economy here in Canada.

You will learn how to create abundance for yourself, while supporting Opportunity International Canada support the Entrepreneurial poor. It’s a win-win all around.

Evening for Entrepreneurs is NOT just another networking event. It’s not even just another charity event. It is a declaration of CHANGE. It is a MOVEMENT! And, you can be part of it.

Please help me with my mission, by making it yours! We can END POVERTY! We can CHANGE THE WORLD. It starts with you and it starts here. And by here, I mean the Calgary Zoo on Friday.
