It is the mission of the Foundation for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship to encourage entrepreneurship and financial literacy among the youth of Alberta, Canada.
The Foundation for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship is motivated by the following beliefs and values:
1) That the world is facing many perplexing problems - including social, economic, health and environmental.
2) That, from Alberta, we can and should provide more & better problem solvers.
3) That as successful business owners, having benefited from those that came before us, it is our obligation to give to those that will take our place.
The specific objective of the Foundation for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship is to promote financial literacy and entrepreneurship among youth by providing scholarships and incentives. We focus on two audiences: high school students that participate in and successfully complete Junior Achievement programs and post-secondary students engaged in entrepreneurial studies or pursuits.
The Board of Directors, as well as committees, shall be comprised of men and women that have demonstrated success as entrepreneurs, with an appreciation for the contribution of financial literacy, and an interest in encouraging and assisting students.
