Canadian Entrepreneurs over the age of 50!


The newest and fastest growing segment of entrepreneurship is led by people over the age of 50. It’s time to recognize their accomplishments and let all of Canada know what they are doing and what they have to offer.

With the help of 80 organizations across Canada spreading the word through their networks and social media, the inaugural WISE 50 over 50 Award received 95 applications/nominations with representation from all Provinces and the Northwest Territory.

Judges from across Canada and the US were given the task of going through the applicants and choosing 50 winners.

The winners have been notified and a a number of them will be joining me on stage, October 19 when the winners are officially announced at the Startup Canada Day on the Hill event. Check out the winners page on this website October 19 as every winner has their own web page where you can find out more about the successes of 50 Canadian businesses started and owned by people over the age of 50!



WISE’s goal is to help encore careerists achieve their business start-up goals by equipping them with the requisite skills, knowledge, resources and confidence.
