TheDob­son La­gassé En­trepreneur­ship Cen­ter, at its an­nual hol­i­day gath­er­ing at Bishop’s, rec­og­nized the suc­cess of 12 en­trepreneurs, all mem­bers of its net­work of 120 small to medium-size busi­nesses lo­cated through­out the Eastern Town­ships. The cen­ter also paid tribute to 16 of its 40 vol­un­teer busi­ness men­tors. Mr. David Monty, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Cen­tre re­marked: “Many el­e­ments come to­gether to cre­ate a suc­cess­ful busi­ness: peo­ple, tal­ent, money, prod­ucts, and ser­vices. But hav­ing a men­tor can be the most valu­able of all. A sin­cere thank you to all our gen­er­ous vol­un­teer men­tors”.

A plaque of recog­ni­tion was given to each of the 16 men­tors hon­ored in the cat­e­gories Bronze, Sil­ver, and Gold, and one of the high­est level: Diamond. The recog­ni­tion sys­tem in­cludes the num­ber of en­trepreneurs that the men­tor have men­tored, and the in­volve­ment of the men­tor in the de­vel­op­ment of busi­ness men­tor­ing at var­i­ous lev­els with the Dob­son-La­gassé Cen­tre and the Town­ships com­mu­nity.

Bronze : John A. Arse­nault, An­dré Bolduc, Pierre Da­ge­nais (ab­sent), Jean-Yves Le­feb­vre, Claudette Les­sard, Faruk Seyrek (ab­sent), Robert Shel­don (ab­sent). Sil­ver : An­dré Chartier, Jean Des Rosiers, Yolande Lemire, Her­mann Ruf, Daniel Verville. Gold : Jean Richard, Danièle Si­mard, Jac­ques Théorêt. Diamond : Guy Boulanger. In ad­di­tion, the Di­rec­tor of the Cen­tre En­trepreneur­ship Sup­port Net­work, Ms. Do­minique Labrecque com­mented:

«We wish to high­light the suc­cesses of those Net­work mem­ber en­trepreneurs who take risks, over­com­ing daily chal­lenges and turn­ing them into suc­cess and jobs. These busi­ness peo­ple, whose suc­cess ben­e­fits the en­tire com­mu­nity, strengthen our Town­ships econ­omy. Our cen­ter is pleased to sup­port their ef­forts and to en­cour­age them to per­se­vere. We con­grat­u­late them on their suc­cess.
