Our friends at FastStart – the youth entrepreneurship training partnership between Trent University, Fleming College and the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster – have launched the #FacesofFastStart series. (Stay connected with #FastStartPtbo events, activities and programming on Twitter at: @FastStartTrent / @FastStartFC.)
FastStart is designed to increase entrepreneurial skills and awareness, help students create solid businesses, and take their products and services to market.
#FacesofFastStart profiles Peterborough’s young aspiring and emerging new entrepreneurs.
Today, #FacesofFastStart profiles Stanislav Puchyn: a fourth year Trent Business student specializing in Entrepreneurship. Born in Ukraine, Stan moved to Canada in 2010. He also travelled to Spain as an exchange student as a part of his academic carrer.
“Seeing the world helped me to meet different cultures and expand my horizon of unlimited opportunities. I believe in a world where opportunities lay down anywhere, the key is to recognize and pursue them”
Stanislav says that FastStart Trent and the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster help students who are interested in the opening a new business by connecting them with hundreds of local entrepreneurs.
“I have met dozens of interesting people participating in FastStart events. You never know where an opportunity is going to lay down, but networking is one of the ways to find it. I strongly encourage all of you to participate in entrepreneurship activities at university and in Peterborough. It is your chance to get into the interesting world of creativity and innovation.”
