Abstract
Encouraging youth entrepreneurship is a focus of governments across the word, with many universities providing programs and courses in entrepreneurship. However, formal education is not enough, the student needs to actually experience the challenges of setting up and running a business. This paper provides a case study of a successful Ontario Government Program called SummerCo, which has enabled over 6,000 student startups over the last 14 years
