#NEXT10: Built with Purpose

May 2020  |  Edition 02


There’s no better time than now to celebrate the good. Luckily for us, our NEXT alumni make that easy to do. Everyday, their ambitions, resilience and ingenuity power the solutions that make our world a better place to be a part of, all while contributing to a better Canadian economy.


This edition of GRIT features ten of our alumni who are redefining what it means to be a social impact venture and paving the way for more purpose-driven entrepreneurs. Plus, some bonus content from our community who continues to persevere (and even thrive) amidst great uncertainty.

Introducing GRIT: A NEXT Canada Publication

February 2020  |  Edition 01


The year 2020 just so happens to coincide with the tenth anniversary of NEXT Canada. That’s an entire decade of ambitious, awe-inspiring and passionate entrepreneurs. With all of the accomplishments of the last decade, it’s time we look to the next 10 and not only celebrate our entrepreneurs, but shine a light on the work still to be done – the problems that need solving and the opportunities to stimulate even more growth.


With GRIT, it’s our goal to share stories of inspiration, learning, failure and success. To inspire even more Canadians to build their own businesses or help support our budding startup ecosystem.
