Youth business program expands

The Gallant Government is helping expand a Moncton youth program to the rest of the province.

Treasury Board President Roger Melanson says the government will provide $345,000 over three years so Venn Innovations can expand its InpireNB program to other areas of the province. the program teams students with business people looking for new talent.

Doug Robertson, president and CEO of Venn Innovation, told the Times and Transcript companies say their number one challenge is finding young talent….while young people seeking a career have to look to other provinces….and not just in tech sectors.
