National Entrepreneurship Day began in 2006 as a special day dedicated to youth entrepreneurship. This event aims to demystify and highlight the importance of entrepreneurial culture in the development of our society among economic players, entrepreneurs, and government officials, in education, in the community and in the media. All over Québec, Youth Entrepreneurship Awareness Officers and Collective Entrepreneurship Marketing Officers are working together to promote the development of a true entrepreneurial culture. NED is organized by the Réseau des carrefours jeunesse-emploi du Québec (RCJEQ) as part of the Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge with support from the Secrétariat à la jeunesse.
