For the second year in a row, Tridel was a proud sponsor of the Branded Youth Entrepreneurship Conference. Hosted at the Artscape Daniels Launchpad on May 2 and 3, 2019, the conference focuses on supporting and developing young entrepreneurs from priority neighbourhoods in the City of Toronto. Participants are able to access one-on-one and small group consulting, marketing assistance and to network with other young professionals.
In addition to the hands-on marketing and consulting assistance, business professionals share their insight, advice and experience directly with participants. This year was no exception. Andrea DelZotto, EVP of Tridel, delivered an inspiring closing speech that encouraged young entrepreneurs to stay their course, embrace their uniqueness and choose their passion over the easy road.
Pitch for Success
Tridel’s Danielle Feidler, Senior VP, Brand Experience, was a judge in the Pitch Contest. The competition was broken into sets. Each set included five entrepreneurs who presented their business case to the panel and the audience. Danielle, along with the other judges, rated the presentations through a series of questions. The evening’s winner was awarded $5,000 to use towards marketing, communication and other support to help their business succeed.
