On November 13th 2014, 60 rising entrepreneurs will be invited to the North York Civic Centre to experience the only FREE one day marketing/branding conference geared towards empowering young entrepreneurs to achieve success.


Branded is all about giving young entrepreneurs real tools that can improve their marketing plans right away. Instead of teaching through workshops the Branded model is about hiring skilled young professionals to provide one-on-one and small group consulting to the young entrepreneurs. Branded aims to build the skills, marketing resources and networks of young entrepreneurs from Toronto’s priority neighborhoods, focused on supporting African Canadian and Newcomer youth.


Branded 2014 is a follow up to last year’s highly successful inaugural Branded Conference, where 60 young entrepreneurs came together in the Jane and Finch community to learn new ways to market their businesses.


Workshops include:


§  Social Media Marketing

§  Brand building business writing

§  Developing a Press Kit

§  Million Dollar Pitch

§  A full photography studio for head shots and product photos


Attendees will also have an opportunity to network with industry leaders at an intimate reception.


We are also inviting established business professionals in the areas of Business Marketing, Fashion, Entertainment and Media Arts, Catering and Food Services, Workshop Facilitation/Event Coordination to become a mentor or consultant during the conference. This would be minimum two hour commitment on November 13th. You will also have an opportunity to be featured in our Professional Spotlight on our website!


Please register at


Due to the incredibly high demand during the inaugural year attendees are required to apply before October 15, 2014.  Should you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us at
