Who Are The 2018 Winners?
25 of the 50 over 50 Winners joined me October 17 and 18 in Ottawa to attend various events taking place over the two days! We started with the e-Sax networking event in the evening of October 17 and then October 18, Startup Canada Day on the Hill, a round table discussion on older entrepreneurship with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Canadian Federation of Independent Business and Government dignitaries and ended the day with a cocktail reception!
Federal Government Parliamentary Secretary, Sherry Romanado, attended the round table discussion and was so impressed with what she heard, she talked about it in the House of Commons the following day.
The WISE 50 over 50 Awards are pleased to welcome partners who understand and support older entrepreneurs.
“Recognition is the greatest motivator.” — Gerald C. Eakerdale”
