ERI continues to work with Futurpreneur Canada to implement a research program devoted to better understanding the causes of successful mentoring and support for new youth-based ventures. Members of ERI have worked with Futurpreneur staff to develop improved data collection from member firms and to analyze these data in light of current theories of entrepreneurship, which has led to insights that have helped Futurpreneur better align its programs. Based on this success, we continue to expand this work to include similar research programs with equivalent partner organizations in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and UK.
