FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia and The Entrepreneurial Development Conference and Expo (EDCE) announce agreement for economic prosperity.

Halifax (February 28, 2017) - Atlantic Canada welcomes Entrepreneurial Development Conference and Expo (EDCE) to Nova Scotia April 28th and 29th, 2017. The day and half conference is designed to motivate, develop, and inspire entrepreneurs. With keynote speakers like Ron Lovett and Alex MacLean, coupled with workshops facilitated by Dalhousie University and ACOA, this conference will add educational value to Nova Scotia’s entrepreneurs.

"The reason we created The Entrepreneurial Development Conference and Expo was to help strengthen the foundations on which small and medium businesses are built,” said EDCE’s CEO, Liam Bryne. The conference aspires to foster business connections in Atlantic Canada and cultivate investment in the growth of the province.

EDCE has teamed up with Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia, a provincial non-profit organization dedicated to teaching youth about financial literacy, workplace readiness and entrepreneurship through hands on experiential learning. Conference organizers are excited to announce the appointment of Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia as their official charity and partner here in Nova Scotia.

“EDCE is a wonderful partner that shares our values and vision for success in Nova Scotia,” says Junior Achievement Nova Scotia’s President and CEO, Kristin Williams.  Williams added: “together we can maximize the impact for delegates and our own achievers.”

Through the partnership between EDCE and JA, between February 29th and March 31, 100% of profits from each ticket sale to the Halifax event will be donated to Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia. To purchase your ticket visit www.edce.ca for more information.
