WISE 50 over 50 Awards
2019 WISE 50 over 50 Awards have launched and are ready for applicants/nominees!
The WISE 50 over 50 Award recognizes and celebrates Canadian Entrepreneurs over the age of 50!
Canadians over 50 are the fastest growing segment of the business start-up population, yet, they are still the most under served and under supported group of entrepreneurs. For change to happen, we need to continue to draw attention to the accomplishments of people who are harnessing the power of experience to make an idea or a long-held dream a reality.
Entrepreneurs have made huge impacts throughout the history of Canada. It’s time for entrepreneurs over 50 to be recognized for the wisdom, initiative, skills, and experience they bring to the business world – modern day heroes, models, and mentors. The WISE 50 Over 50 Awards were created two years ago to recognize and celebrate 50 of these entrepreneurs who started a business after the age of 50.
Celebrating Canadian Entrepreneurs over the age of 50
The awards are open to Canadian residents who started their business after turning 50. Submissions will be accepted until June 30, 2019 from founders of new businesses, purchasers of existing businesses and franchises, and initiators of family and intergenerational businesses – as long as the entrepreneur is a majority owner of the business and the head office is in Canada. A total of 50 awards will be presented to accomplished entrepreneurs over 50.
Know someone who meets the requirements? Nominate them now! Closing date is midnight June 30, 2019.
