This March 2020, Passion to Purpose Bootcamp was held at Kingbridge Conference Centre, King, ON. The event brought 60 past forum participants from across Canada for an intensive bootcamp weekend. The event aimed to support young people by giving them industry knowledge to help them improve themselves and their projects. The workshop topics delve into self-improvement, marketing, branding, and communications.

 

One of the highlights of the weekend is the ‘Duke Den‘. Through the Duke Den, participants who have finished and completed a project with a Passion to Purpose Community Grant were able to pitch a scaleup project idea to top industry professionals. All scaleup participants were funded a total of $100,000 altogether.

In Their Own Words...

"This past week I’ve made the most incredible friends and I recognized that my passions are valid, and failure is okay. I’m excited for the incredible things coming in the next little while, but I’m ever so excited to know that our country is in the best hands with a group of leaders like these people."
