The CYBF Village – Entrepeer

Futurpreneur | January 29, 2013

For many entrepreneurs, their business is their “baby”- and we all know it takes a village to raise a child. Here at CYBF, we never want our entrepreneurs to feel like they are alone in their journey, or that they can’t get the advice they need. So we are bringing the CYBF community together to create the village that our entrepreneurs need to build successful businesses.

The CYBF community is made up of CYBF entrepreneurs, mentors, staff, community partners, expert advisors, Local Review Committee members and others in the entrepreneurial sphere across Canada. This community is growing every day and here at CYBF, we have developed a program called Entrepeer to help this community connect and to provide our entrepreneurs with the support they need. The main goal of Entrepeer is to provide a forum for members of the CYBF community to communicate, share ideas and to collaborate. Here are three ways that Entrepeer can help you:

Entrepeer Experience is a series of face-to-face networking events at Keg Steakhouse and Bar locations across Canada. Each event is attended by CYBF staff, mentors, entrepreneurs, community partners and Local Review Committee members. January and February events are listed below. If you are a CYBF community member who wishes to attend an event, please email entrepeer@cybf.ca to request an invitation. Don’t see your city listed here?
