Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship

We are advancing youth entrepreneurship within our country, starting in Toronto, Canada. Creating the next wave of technology creators rather than technology users.

MENTORSHIP

Here at SAGE Canada we understand the importance of assigning students with a shining role model. Mentors help lead students to success, whilst sharing their knowledge, experience, and providing feedback.

WORKSHOPS

Workshops are built keeping in mind the need to bridge educational gaps that may prevent students with the knowledge and resources to see their business soar! We leverage Ryerson University professors and our partners to assure the students have access to the best skills and tools that will allow them to succeed.

COMPETITION

Throughout the year, there are many opportunities for students to meet their competitors. A little healthy competition does not hurt anyone. In fact, competition gives students some extra motivation and reignites that fire within to keep students driven.

ABOUT US

Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship (SAGE) Canada is a non-profit organization led by dedicated post-secondary students, housed within Ryerson University.

SAGE strives to advance youth development and community engagement, while nurturing an innovative environment; by providing educational assistance, resources, and one-on-one mentorship to youth between the ages of 13 to 18. The students are given an opportunity to start their own business ventures, while being taught the importance of emphasizing ethical business practices, social responsibility, civic engagement, and environmental awareness.

OUR CURRENT PARTNERS

Without the support of the community, our corporate partners as well as Ryerson University, we would not be able to create the impact that we have today. We aim to impact a wide reach of youth to eventually become a nationally recognized youth entrepreneurship accelerator program.

BECOME A STARTUP CONSULTANT

Our Startup Consultants are our student mentors; they are dedicated individuals that are passionate about the startup culture and consulting. Every mentor is trained ahead of the school year to assure each SAGE team is given the best resources and business direction through the school year. With the emphasis on a strength-focused leadership style, our mentors are trained to identify strengths on their team they are assigned with, further enabling their teams to flourish based on individual self improvement and overall business success.
