Profit Guide - Celebrating Canada's Future Entrepreneurial Leaders
Nov. 10, 2011

Celebrating Canada’s Future Entrepreneurial Leaders.

Canada’s economic prospects depend on the country’s ability to build more innovative, well-managed companies that can compete in the hyper-connected global marketplace. And that means we need to produce and support more young entrepreneurs.

That’s the impetus for the FuEL Awards, a national recognition program launched in 2011 by PROFIT Magazine and Impact Entrepreneurship Group. Celebrating Canada’s Future Entrepreneurial Leaders, the FuEL Awards honour the achievements and aspirations of entrepreneurs under the age of 30, identify role models for progressive business practices and inspire youth to make entrepreneurship their No. 1 career choice.  The 2011 program was made possible by the support of Presenting Sponsor Rogers; National Sponsors KPMG Enterprise and TD Bank Group; and Associate Sponsor Filemobile.

The 20 FuEL Award winners for 2011, including the FuEL Entrepreneur of the Year, were selected through a combination of online voting by the general public and review by a panel of judges that included some of Canada’s most respected entrepreneurs.

Full coverage of the winners will appear in the December/January 2012 issue of PROFIT and here at on December 7. In the meantime, you can view the candidate profiles of the winners and all the other candidates.
