We met Julianne Lauzon, a student with a gifted profile from Joseph-Henrico elementary school, and her teacher Chantal Leblanc, both facilitators of a workshop as part of the first Fall Congress of Entrepreneurial Education Ideas, which takes place took place in Quebec on November 2, 2018.

At 8 years old, Julianne identified a need in her class and imagined a project that could meet it; she created the company JLS (J'aime les sports) and carried out training sessions in the form of video capsules for her comrades. From market research (survey to identify the favorite sports of the students in her class) to the expansion of her business (recruitment of a friend to help her with her project), the young entrepreneur has developed several skills that will serve him well for life.
In this interview, Chantal explains that from the start of the school year, she noticed Julianne's curiosity and motivation and that she looked for ways to develop these two qualities. When asked what posture the teacher should adopt to allow students to grow through entrepreneurial projects, Chantal replies that we must show humility and openness and above all, that we must not give in of time tags.
We invite you to listen to this interview in order to discover the potential of conscious entrepreneurial pedagogy on young people and adults!
We also invite you to participate in the second edition of the Fall Congress to be held on October 24 and 25 at the Lévis Convention Center.
