StartUP Nations 2019 in pictures: A social economy event for First Nations youth
The FNQLEDC and the First Nations Social Economy Regional Table (FNSERT) are proud to present the video of the second edition of the StartUP Nations, an event targeting First Nations youth and focusing on youth collective entrepreneurship.
Let us recall that the second edition of the StartUP Nations was held from May 23 to 25, 2019 at Concordia University in Montreal. The objective of this event is to promote the social economy among Quebec First Nations youth as a model for socio-economic development.
For its second edition, StartUP Nations has brought together more than forty young people aged 15 to 35, representing seven First Nations and eight communities, to provide them with the tools to develop their projects for collective entrepreneurship. All in all, eight diversified and promising projects from the sectors of tourism, accommodation, Native culture, food and restaurant industry, services for people and community-based development.
StartUP Nations coincides with the launch of the Social Economy Youth Incubator Initiative, SISMIC, made possible with assistance from the Chantier de l’Économie sociale and the Secrétariat à la jeunesse. The main objective of the Social Economy Incubator project to promote and enable collective empowerment of young people between the ages of 15 and 35 who are interested in collective entrepreneurship (social economy). The project evolves several stages of accompaniment during which youth can attend workshops to explore various ideas and prototypes while acquiring pre-startup tools for social economy projects, including the organization of a collective event.
