  • Reality of increasing entrepreneurs in Canada. Also, reality that many more Entrepreneurs are now University educated, contrary to pre 1990s. - Entrepreneurship Programs are becoming more common place at Canadian Schools. -
  • Discussion on “what is Entrepreneurship?”
  • The reality of young entrepreneurs – and what they need to succeed, or at least beat the odds of failure in small/new business. College Pro is one example of this (verbal message). We have expertise in this field, we develop young entrepreneurs = fact We have 500 new young entrepreneurs every year – not many companies out there do that
  • Discuss added value of real life experience, getting feedback while young – combined with formal education = accelerated learning and performance Reality = Typical University education is low level learning. Speaks to the higher level learning that comes from in field/live experience coupled with coaching/feedback to push the learning and development. This links to our belief in coaching and people development as the key to success. Lecture = 10% retention after 3 months Lab/Demonstration = 32% retention after 3 months Experienced/Repeated = 65% retention after 3 months
  • Open, MLG Style discussion with session participants. Perspectives on “risk” to a university student When is the best time in life to take a risk? University – you may drop out/fail out Army – you could die
  • From surveys of current young entrepreneurs, and those who started at a young age. What are some thoughts around this? What does this mean to people? These were the condensed themes from current & past young entrepreneurs. #2 – links to the bigger picture: Ties to success in education and career. Doing something for real, with real consequences  real learning. How can we as educators and employers help to foster accountability and learning?
  • Discuss If you are successful but have no idea how you were successful, were you successful? It’s not replicable, it’s not sustainable.. If someone failed at something, but they learned – is that not success? If you’re not failing, at some level you’re not pushing yourself.

    11. 11. So Why Am I Here?
    12. 12. What To Do? My Two Cents• We need more “doers” and less talkers• Entrepreneurship ≠ Risk• Learn to manage risk • Early experience & exposure to entrepreneurialism
    13. 13. Entrepreneurship: Some Facts• In the past 2 years, more than 25,000 small businesses began operating in Canada.• In the past year, 45,000 more Canadians have become “self-employed”.• 1 in 4 of these new business owners have post secondary education (double from 1990).• 8% of Canadians are currently self-employed (approx.2,700,000)- Statistics Canada & CIBC World Markets Research
    14. 14. Thoughts?
    15. 15. Young Entrepreneurs• Lack experience – How they’re raised? – How they’re educated?• Need depth of skill• Skill + Experience = Performance, fast• Limiting variables = Increased success – Many student entrepreneurship opportunities take advantage of this: service, market, system
    16. 16. Experiential Learning- Ryan Bannerman Associates, Facilitating Powerful Learning Experiences,2009
    17. 17. The Gap• Learning & Knowledge deficiency can often lead to the perception of it being riskier
    18. 18. What is “Risk” to a student?
    19. 19. Risk: DefinedRisk is defined as:• exposure to the chance of injury or loss; danger; hazard.• the possibility of incurring misfortune or loss; hazard
    20. 20. Risk: Young Entrepreneur Perspective• It’s not a risk – it’s calculated. Vegas is a risk. Entrepreneurs don’t take risk, we plan and then execute.• You are the risk – you make the decisions.• The opportunity cost associated with pursuing a particular route.• Failure, and the need to start over again.
    21. 21. What is Failure?
    22. 22. Not a Couple of Years From Now• You have some career decisions to make… – Employee – Entrepreneur 25
    23. 23. Entrepreneur vs Employee• What are some of the differences?• Consider risks of both & benefits of both• Tend to focus on losing what we have (or what we think we have)
    24. 24. My Advice - Now is the Time• Practice now – get involved• Gather Advisors & Coaches• Later you’ll have more to lose• Become involved in programs that provide you with responsibility
