The Haddocks, and Edwards School of Business, feel optimistic about the future of entrepreneurship in Saskatchewan. The second crop of young entrepreneurs (kids 7 to 15) to enter the Get a Bigger Wagon Young Entrepreneur Awards (GABWYEA) exhibits a wide variety of interests and business styles. Three of the four 2019 award recipients are return applicants, and they have fine-tuned or reinvented their businesses with remarkable success. Gord Haddock said, “It was great to hear one young man reveal that he created a new business after listening to Duane Smith speak about dealerships.” Duane was the 2018 presenter in the annual Haddock Entrepreneurial Speaker Series. Maureen says, “It is wonderful to see young people show such resilience and determination.” The Get a Bigger Wagon philosophy is about never giving up.
The judges were delighted to receive applications from as far away as Consul, Saskatchewan, and everyone hopes to see entries from all corners of the province in 2020. Maureen Haddock said, “This is just our second year for the competition, and I am starting to mark the towns represented by our applicants onto a provincial map.”
Everyone is welcome to attend the combined Haddock Entrepreneurial Speaker Series and GABWYEA ceremony. The winners will be introduced and presented with their awards at Edwards School of Business on January 14, 2020. The Haddocks look forward to meeting with all applicants, past and present, and their families. The event celebrates entrepreneurship with guests of all ages.
