A considerable pool of talent in the Iranian community living in Canada was the subject of discussions among generations of immigrants and students. The SUTA Chapter in Ottawa in cooperation with CSIEA planned a meeting to show the road to success to young talents.
A group of 34 young graduates and students who are potentially ready to start their business based on their innovative ideas were invited to listen to the speakers from government and private sector.
Mr. Peter Stewart was our first speaker who explained all the facilities available to innovators and entrepreneurs to start their business and how to apply for funding and other services.
Our next speaker was Dr. Alizadeh from Giatec Corporation. He started his talk by telling his success story and also the challenges on their way to success. Dr. Alizadeh’s first start-up in partnership with long time friend and classmate Dr. Pouria Ghods is now a successful international company after several years of hard work and many challenges. They achieved this level of success two years after starting their business.
The meeting was very useful to young soles of the community to see they are not left behind and the possibility to flourish and grow is available, just need to know the rules of the game and also to work hard.
SUTA congratulates the Ottawa Chapter for this successful event.
