The Indigenous Youth Idea Challenge (IYIC) provides Saskatchewan Indigenous Youth ages 14-30 the tools necessary to make their entrepreneurial interests a reality. The participants engage in eight workshops during winter months to develop a self-sustaining business plan. The top five participants then present their business plan at the annual Final Gala to judges to compete for start-up capital.
