"Year of the Canadian Entrepreneur"

A new year has begun.

Today, January 8, RoyNat officially launches "The Year of the Canadian Entrepreneur," a multi-sponsor promotional project designed to celebrate Canadian entrepreneurs. The official website is www.yoce.ca.

The project includes a renewed, 12-page Entrepreneur section weekly in the Financial Post, as well as a series of 20-page inserts, the Essential Guide for Entrepreneurs, to run throughout the year in Canadian Business and PROFIT magazines.

There are also plans for a travelling entrepreneurship exhibition to tour the country this spring.

While not an official part of the consortium that bears its name, Canadian Entrepreneur (i.e., this blog) will be taking part. My new column for the Financial Post will run in the newly expanded Entrepreneur section every other Monday.

Today's column looks at the seven reasons why Canadian entrepreneurship is alive, and well, and growing. Click here to read it.

Plus, if they want to use the URL "CanadianEntrepreneur.net," they can just give me a call. In true entrepreneurial fashion, we'll work something out.

Just before the end of the year I declared it Year of the Entrepreneur

So it's very cool to see a Canadian project like this!
