Since 2012, CYBF and TELUS have enjoyed a partnership committed to helping young entrepreneurs succeed.
To date, CYBF has invested in more than 5,260 young entrepreneurs, whose businesses have created more than 20,800 new jobs.
In addition to the grant Accenture will provide CYBF with pro-bono services to help ensure the long-term success of the program.
Teaming with CYBF fits with Accenture's global corporate citizenship focus, Skills to Succeed, which recognizes that skills are one of the most powerful drivers of success.
I look forward to working with CYBF
s strategic and community partners, mentors, staff and young entrepreneurs to build on this terrific track record and to help more young Canadians create the economic prosperity Canada needs to create the social outcomes we want.
