QUÉBEC, Sept.16, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - We are pleased to announce that the Québec Entrepreneurship Contest has become the OSEntreprendre Challenge! This change of name and logo, provided for in our strategic plan for 2014-2017 and made possible through the support of private partners, is designed to reflect the boldness of our clients and our mission to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship. For Manon Théberge, President and Director General, "The new brand is bold, strong and vibrant, reflecting our mission and the passionate people we support!"
The OSEntreprendre Challenge is a major entrepreneurship contest that has been taking place at the local, regional and provincial levels for 18 years. Through its Student Entrepreneurship division, which recognizes young people from elementary school all the way through to university, and its Business Creation division, which supports new entrepreneurs, the Challenge draws more than 40 000 participants each year. It can count on over 350 representatives to help implement it throughout Québec's 17 regions. This is a key ingredient in its success!
The OSEntreprendre Challenge is the main activity of the OSEntreprendre corporation, which implements initiatives to MOBILIZE a large network of partners to PROMOTE entrepreneurial initiatives in order to INSPIRE more people to believe in themselves and rise to the Challenge.
Our mission is to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship in order to help build a proud, innovative, committed and prosperous Québec. This is made possible with the financial support of such committed partners as Desjardins Group and the Québec government (respectively, our presenting and title partners), the Ministère de l'Éducation, de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche, the Ministère de l'Économie, de l'Innovation et des Exportations, the Secrétariat à la jeunesse, the Secrétariat à la condition féminine, Les Affaires, Vidéotron Business Solutions, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, Gaz Métro, the Ordre des comptables professionnels agréés du Québec (CPA), and Saputo.
