A Program to Foster Entrepreneurship Mindset and Encourage Diversity in Innovation Ecosystem for Young Women+ (Age 14 to 18)

The CDL Apprentice Program, in partnership with Scotiabank, supports young women+ interested in STEM and entrepreneurship. Despite representing 50% of the population, women remain underrepresented in technical studies and careers, and less than 3% of venture capital is invested in women-led startups.
