Yukon entrepreneurs profiled in new video series

Yukon entrepreneurs are showcased in a new series of documentary-style videos commissioned by the Government of Yukon. The series profiles eight Yukon businesses on their journey through entreprenuership. The videos highlight the territory’s growing entrepreneurial workforce as well as the opportunities and advantages available to those looking to start a business in Yukon.

The videos will premiere at an event in Whitehorse on November 14 at the North of Ordinary Experience Centre from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Entrepreneurs enrich our communities while contributing to the growth and diversification of Yukon’s economy, and it’s important that we support them and highlight their successes. These videos showcase young Yukoners, their strong entrepreneurial spirit and the variety of opportunities that make Yukon a place where anyone can work hard to build a great future.
