As an entrepreneur, you need to understand the key elements of your business plan. But you don’t need to figure out all the answers by yourself—just ask Karen Greve Young, CEO of Futurpreneur.

Futurpreneur Canada has been fuelling the success of young Canadian entrepreneurs since 1996. It is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to providing financing, mentoring and support tools to aspiring business owners aged 18-39. Since inception, it has helped 12,000+ young entrepreneurs launch businesses that contribute to sustainable economic development in their communities and for Canada. Prior to joining Futurpreneur in 2018, Karen led Corporate Development & Partnerships at MaRS Discovery District, and previously worked in San Francisco, New York and London, UK, at organizations including Bain & Company, Gap Inc. and the UK’s Institute of Cancer Research. Karen serves on the Board of Ovarian Cancer Canada. She holds an MBA from Stanford University and a BA in Economics from Harvard University.

“We work with the entrepreneur to help develop their business plan and their cash flow to the very best form possible.”

On this week’s THRIVE Podcast, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada and Scotiabank, Karen talks about Futurpreneur, and giving all kinds of young entrepreneurs a launchpad to accomplishing their goals.
