The conference attracts 500 of the top high school and post-secondary students from across Canada. This is where youth leaders and like-minded individuals with a passion for entrepreneurship gather to inspire, learn, educate, and cultivate their peers with the entrepreneurial spirit.

This two-day conference aims to inspire and motivate youth to participate in entrepreneurial endeavours while equipping them with the skills needed to become ambassadors for entrepreneurship in their communities.

Impact's networking activities and workshops provide participants with an opportunity to develop and practice key business skills such as teamwork, strategizing, decision making, taking initiative, practical start-up skills, and creative thinking. In addition the conference boasts a star-studded lineup of speakers from a wide spectrum of backgrounds including business, entertainment, technology and science. These speakers lead a variety of stimulating events designed to enrich delegates' knowledge on entrepreneurship. This year's conference features a variety of events including 6th annual gala dinner, interactive workshops, breakaway speaker sessions, office tours, an exhibition and much more.

We're very excited to have you join our 6th annual National Conference in Toronto this year. The Impact National Conference will be hosted and recognized as a premier event during Global Entrepreneurship Week this November.
