“The failure rate for StartUp Canada Members is half the national average and 8% of our Members are high-growth vs 4% generally”
Victoria Lennox is the co-founder and CEO of Startup Canada, the national rallying community supporting and giving a voice to Canada’s 2.3 million entrepreneurs. She has been recognized by the United Nations Development Program and the European Union as one of the foremost experts in entrepreneurship education.
“I want Startup Canada to be a household name so we can help people and create a nation of entrepreneurs.”
As the catalyst for Startup Generation and host of Startup Nations, Victoria supports and mentors the development of youth enterprise organizations in more than 20 countries; provides advisory support to international organizations in the areas of entrepreneurship networks, education and policy development; and supports colleges and universities in enhancing their entrepreneurial activities. Countries around the world are also working to emulate Startup Canada's methodologies and activities, viewing the organization, under Victoria's leadership, as the best practice in fuelling entrepreneurship culture.
“It’s incumbent on all leaders to tell your stories as you never know who you will inspire”
