It was all a part of the First Nations University of Canada’s (FNUniv) Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Camp.

The camp has grade 11 and 12 high-school students team up and brainstorm business ideas. With help from the senior students and business faculty at FNUniv, the students compile presentations and pitch them to a panel of judges.

“It never fails to amaze me the ideas they come up with and then how they begin to evaluate their idea,” said Richard Missens, a member of the business faculty. “They look at target markets, their financials, their start ups and they do all the research, of course with the help of the senior business students and us as faculty.”

The camp also encourages students to think about continuing their education in the world of business.
