CYBF and Government of Alberta Collaborate to Support Young Entrepreneurs

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - The Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) and the Government of Alberta are working together to promote entrepreneurship in Alberta and assisting young entrepreneurs, ages 18-34, who are starting new businesses.

By offering business planning workshops and resources, CYBF and the Government of Alberta are raising awareness about the importance of entrepreneurship across the province and are also educating Albertans on how to start their own businesses.

"CYBF is very pleased to be working with the Government of Alberta to support young entrepreneurs on the journey towards establishing successful businesses," said Vivian Prokop, CYBF Chief Executive Officer. "Helping young entrepreneurs promotes healthy competition in the marketplace and means more jobs will be created as these new businesses grow."

Current and future entrepreneurs are invited to participate in a six-part Business Plan Workshop Series, hosted by CYBF and proudly supported by the Government of Alberta, to learn more about starting and growing a new business. Workshops will be taking place throughout the province starting this month. Visit www.cybf.ca/news-events/goa.php for more information.
