Y2 Entrepreneurship Labs (http://y2labs.co/) is an incubator for teens and pre-teens who are interested to learn more about entrepreneurship. Our offerings include events and conferences, in-school accelerator programs (in-class training curriculum, in-school entrepreneur mentoring), and connections with investors (for education).
Our flagship event, the Y2 Entrepreneur Conference is a 2-part event where teens between 13-18 years of age learn to bring a business idea from concept to customer validation to presentation. Participants work in teams and directly with experienced entrepreneurs from across York Region and the GTA, who volunteer to be mentors, coaches, speakers, judges, or prizes. The top-2 teams continue their learning, as they each receive a prize of a mentoring meal with a serial entrepreneur.
Information about upcoming conferences and our in-school programming are at http://y2labs.co/.
