Givex Information Technology Group Limited (TSX:GIVX, OTCQX:GIVXF) has announced that Givex Canada Corporation has announced a partnership with Enactus Canada, a national charity and the country’s largest post-secondary experiential learning platform.
The aim of the partnership is to help shape entrepreneurial leaders who are passionate about advancing the economic, social and environmental health of Canada.
“Having had the privilege of judging both International and Canadian Enactus competitions, it became very clear to me that Canada has a new generation of brilliant and motivated young leaders in our universities,” said Don Gray, CEO of Givex in a statement.
“I believe it is important to give these young leaders a platform to test their ideas and learn what it takes to not only have an idea or a dream but how to do the work needed to make it a reality. Enactus Canada is doing this for Canadians, and as part of a global organization, it is helping young leaders in many countries gain this same experience. Givex is proud to support Enactus Canada as a Gold Sponsor,” he added.
