The Canadian government is seeking applicants for a conference promoting entrepreneurship amongst young people.

Called Youth Can Do It!, the conference aims to identify “diverse, young entrepreneurs,” and invite them to share their story of building a business. The government says that attendees will get the opportunity to network, receive mentorship, and receive resources for their business.

The conference is open to entrepreneurs aged 18 to 24 leading businesses at all stages of development, including the idea stage. Applicants must explain why they are the perfect candidate, what inspired them to pursue their journey, and their story of entrepreneurship. Selected applicants will have airfare and accommodations to the Ottawa event covered.

The deadline to apply is March 12, 2018.
