Ottawa... CATAAlliance, Canada's largest high tech association and recognized champion of Canadian innovation and entrepreneurship, announced today that its acclaimed TechNOW show will turn its focus on interviews with Canada's next generation leaders.
CATA CEO, John Reid, said, "We are using the interview series to kickstart the Legacy Conference, a joint CATA venture with Enactus uOttawa that is looking at how we can better motivate and empower young Canadians to become successful entrepreneurs."
Reid added, "We have to understand the skills and resources that entrepreneurs need, and then create a roadmap for filling any gaps limiting Canada's realization of its entrepreneurial potential."
The Legacy Conference, now in its 5th year, is being held on November 21 in Ottawa, Canada. It attracts post secondary students from across the country and provides them with opportunities to build peer networks and access a variety of entrepreneurial speakers and workshops.
The new TechNOW series is being hosted on line by CATA CEO, John Reid, who will be engaging in discussion with interviewees on topics affecting Canada's innovation and entrepreneurship performance rankings.
Interview dates will be published on the CATAAlliance, CATA@Canada Events Calendar (www.cata.ca) and CATA's Social Media Group on Linkedin (www.linkedin.com/groups/Canadian-Advanced-Technology-Alliance-CATA-37239/about)
