Imagine what thousands of brilliant young minds from 36 different countries could do to change the world. It’s an electrifying thought, and it’s what will be happening this week in Toronto.

Capital One Canada is immensely proud to be a host country sponsor for the Enactus World Cup kicking off this week, here in Toronto. We can’t wait to be in the presence of these future leaders, helping to empower them to make a positive difference in the world. The Enactus student-entrepreneurs inspire us.

That’s why we are working closely with Enactus Canada to help achieve their goal of shaping the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders who are passionate about advancing the economic, social and environmental health of their communities. We’ve seen first-hand how programs like Enactus can help develop young leaders by giving them experience organizing people and ideas to make a positive impact where it’s needed most. These leaders go on to do great things after they graduate, and we’re fortunate to count many of them among our associates at Capital One.

At Capital One Canada, we think about making a difference every day. We don’t just consider ourselves a local employer. We are your neighbours, friends and family, and like Enactus Canada, we are fiercely committed to helping our communities succeed in this rapidly changing world.

So come be inspired with us and watch these amazing stories come to life at the Enactus World Cup. They will be streaming LIVE at enactus.org/worldcup.
