We will be returning to the UBC Sauder School of Business, one of Canada’s most prestigious business schools, to hold our 11th annual conference. Established in 1956, UBC Sauder School of Business maintains an international reputation for excellence in research and learning and unmatched global partnerships. Their values align with those of miniE; entrepreneurship, leadership, and innovation, all while fostering a spirit of collaboration. In addition, Sauder strives to provide each student with equal opportunities to expand their professional networks beyond the classroom setting. Students are exposed to a diverse community of industry leaders, business professionals, alumni, and fellow motivated students.
Sauder’s building is as equally inspiring as the inclusive community that is found within its spacious, beautiful interior. The building has recently been renovated with enhanced resources and facilities, topped with a sleek, modern design. All of Sauder’s core values are reflected within its building, as it provides students with a collective space to collaborate, innovate, and create.
The miniEnterprize Youth Business Conference is an annual one-day event taking place on Saturday, February 22nd, 2020. With a primary focus on business and entrepreneurship, miniEnterprize aims to encourage youth to take initiative and think outside the box.
Our conference is designed to help teens succeed in the business world by providing them with an opportunity to learn from and interact with experienced professionals. As we wish to help teens further develop their business and entrepreneurship skills, delegates participate in hands-on workshops and listen to seasoned presenters before competing in a case competition based on problems they may encounter in the real world. Teams will have the chance to assess a company through the process of identifying problematic setbacks and formulating an inventive yet feasible solution, then presenting these ideas to a professional judging panel. From this experience, miniEnterprize hopes to foster leaders in marketing, finance, and management.
The winning team of miniEnterprize will receive a $1,000 grant to fund their business idea.
The miniEnterprize Executive Team encourages students to take advantage of what this unique conference has to offer and is confident that all participants will leave with a better understanding of the business community, new problem solving skills, and improved entrepreneurship skills.
