Description

WHAT IS THE YEC?

The Young Entrepreneurs Conference (YEC) started in 2012 as a platform to launch the spearhead for creating an opportunity for young professionals to engage in meaningful discussions about business, technology, and entrepreneurship. Since then, the conference has grown from its young roots at UofT and has seen increasing attendance year over year due to its curation of quality and experience. Watch the video here.

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

The YEC brings in high-profile speakers like Michael Hyatt (Dragon's Den, Blue Cat Networks, Top 40 Under 40), Bobby Umar (4 Times TEDx Speaker, Huffington Post Writer), Kal Mokhtarzada (Pixel Dreams), Alkarim Nasser (Bnotions) and Heather Payne (Ladies Learning Code). Further to that, the YEC also brings out several companies that not only show off their latest innovations and technology but also recruit students out of the conference for internships, contracts and full-time jobs.

INTERDISCIPLINARY

The YEC also gives an opportunity for interdisciplinary endeavours. Currently, the YEC is the only known conference to host a significant percentage of young design students & professionals. In recent years we've hosted design competitions with Google, Deloitte Digital, HP and Cisco where young professionals competed with the best from all over the GTA in order to take home big prize money and direct job opportunities from those companies. We understand and believe that business, innovation and entrepreneurship is not a single-track endeavour, it takes all kinds of minds coming together to create something amazing.

THE MAIN GOAL: BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

The main goal and biggest tenet of YEC that has remained throughout the years is the conference's ability to bring like-minded and motivated individuals together, creating meaningful and long-lasting relationships. We believe that true success only happens together, not alone. We made YEC to manifest that notion.

TARGET AUDIENCE

YEC’18 is bringing together innovative students from universities across Ontario who are interested in developing and implementing solutions in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development. YEC attracts a demographic of intelligent, curious and skilled post-secondary students. These students are interested in networking, putting their skills to the test, finding mentors and discovering new opportunities.


The conference topics appeal to a range of audiences - all of which take part in the emerging fintech, digital marketing and educational organizations in the social entrepreneurship community. We will explore this common theme and its development in the organizations’ practices.


DEM Association’s YEC’18 will attract the tech savvy participants who want to learn how social entrepreneurship will affect their future and the future of the business stream
