The Economic Club Presents: "Growing Canadian Entrepreneurship: Reducing the Startup Failure Rate and Improving Financial Management"

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2014) - One in five startup companies fail within their first five years. A recent study from Intuit Canada found that lack of financial literacy skills is one of the major barriers affecting the success of entrepreneurs. The Startup Canada Financial Literacy Committee was established to provide advice to government officials and entrepreneurs about the severity of the financial literacy gap and aims to undertake private sector-led initiatives to reduce this gap. Join a seasoned group of panelists to learn about the challenges startups face and how to create more resilient, high-growth companies.
