Say Hello to Summit Leaders

Supporting the next generation of Canada's leaders.

Summit Leaders is a not-for-profit organization that was founded to spark an interest in business and entrepreneurship among Canadian youth. Our overarching goal is to increase diversity in Canadian boardrooms and in executive positions.

Our Program


The core of the Summit program is a business case competition that is run in partnership with select Canadian high schools. Students work in groups to come up with a business idea, and the program teaches them how to take their business idea from concept to an executable business plan. Students learn about legal, marketing, and financial aspects of their business, and are coached on how to properly communicate and present their ideas.


Another important aspect of the Summit program is its focus on entrepreneurship. Students are asked to take ownership of their business idea and develop it throughout the school semester. Our goal is to inspire students to have confidence in their ideas and develop their ideas to fruition.


The most important aspect of the Summit program is its focus on mentorship. In addition to the educational workshops, students are paired with MBA student mentors and professionals in the industry, who guide and advise students as they work on their business ideas. Mentors provide more than just business expertise: they also act as role models as students consider post-secondary education and their careers.
