What do youth in NL need to know about Youth Ventures?
That it’s free, most things today are not free, however we are. You can ask us anything and if we don’t know the answer we will not stop until we can find it and help you out. Youth ventures is a great avenue to test out your business idea and get an idea on if it is something that you might actually want to peruse in the future as your career.

It is important to know that failing is an option, and we are not as successful if we do not fail. Pushing yourself outside your comfort zone and having the potential to fail is what will push you the furthest in your business.
