THANK YOU to everyone who came out last night to support a GREAT CAUSE.
We started momentum toward a movement of entrepreneurship and have set a really solid foundation for a community built around entrepreneurship and philanthropy and I can’t wait to see what we do next as a group of POWERFUL Entrepreneurs!! And, I REALLY mean that, I’m already planning the next events and projects and I encourage you to start making BIG plans yourself – whether on your own or as a group! Let’s END POVERTY THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP!!
Photos from the evening taken by two very talented entrepreneurial photographers, Nicole Browne and Ben Tsui will be posted soon. Video produced by Matt Keay will also be posted in the next little while. Thank you all for capturing the night!
Our Sponsors The Jungle Project, Gurutropolis, GrowOp, and One World Drumming Co.
Live Entertainment was provided by the drummers at One World Drumming and Alberto San Martin of Together for Chile
Opportunity International – Thank you to Doris Olafsen, Adele Madonia, and Paul Wegenast who flew in from across Canada to be part of the evening. Doris and Adele ended off the night with an extremely powerful and inspiring speech. If anyone does NOT want to be part of this movement after hearing these two passionate women, I would be shocked.
Our “tribal chief” Barry Chugg – Rockstar MC who showed great patience as we worked through all of the hiccups of our first event and who brought everything together so nicely.
Our Guest Speakers Andrew Watts, Jay Fiset, Colin Collard, Sheldon Baranec, Bonnie Eckert, and Cliff Alexander. A powerful group of Entrepreneurs who inspired all of the guests (myself included) to incorporate philanthropy into business right from the start. “You don’t have to be a billionaire to do this!”
Gurutropolis – Thank you Jill Fisher, Thuy Vu, Gord Johansen for creating the “Buzz” and a fun way for participants to connect with each other. This exercise reinforced a big lesson for the evening – SUPPORT and COMMUNITY.
