MONTREAL, March 27, 2017 /CNW/ - A 16-year-old student launches a platform for 13 to 18-year-old entrepreneurs on March 31st.
As part of the recent rapid development of student entrepreneurship in Québec, Jean-Christoph Btaiche, a young student-entrepreneur, is officially launching YoungLeaders. He wants future young entrepreneurs from CEGEPs and high schools to benefit from his organization's network of renowned coaches and mentors from around the world.
Globetrotter and entrepreneurship aficionado, Jean-Christoph has already managed to build ties with CEOs of successful businesses from around the world (USA, Australia, UK, etc.).
Last year, Jean-Christoph attended Techweek in Dallas, where he met executives from IBM, Toyota, and AT&T, and earlier this year he attended the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, where he met executives from GoPro and Bernard LeRoy, French Deputy and member of the group UDF, among others.
Time to meet YoungLeaders
In January 2017, YoungLeaders held its first event at Carrefour jeunesse-emploi Montréal Centre-ville, where they met 60 aspiring young entrepreneurs.
Spurred by the success of this first event, Jean-Christoph is ready to officially launch YoungLeaders. Several well-known speakers have already confirmed their presence for the event, including:
Production Director, Grant Cardone

In the last 90 days, he was responsible for over $1.3M in advertising sales, in addition to writing 100 articles on branding and marketing, and producing more than 30 shows per week for various media. It was through his work for NBC Universal, Citysearch, Yelp and YellowPages, that Robert met Grant Cardone, an author on the New York Times bestsellers list and international sales expert.
Simon De Baene
Co-Founder & CEO, GSOFT
At just 31 years of age, Simon De Baene is the visionary at the helm of GSOFT, one of Quebec's largest SMBs.
