CEO Manitoba exists to provide students with access to the events, network, and support they require to successfully venture into entrepreneurship. By improving access, we aim to become more valuable on a larger scale.

As a community, we have received notable recognition for our entrepreneurial and startup efforts in Winnipeg, which are most definitely worth celebrating. However, we’re looking to exceed the community’s expectations. We would like to see Winnipeg continue to blossom into an entrepreneurial hub that is attractive to private equity, venture capital, and risk capital. By doing so, we can make Manitoba better for everyone.

We have a vibrant community, with incredible amounts of potential. CEO Manitoba is committed to encouraging our members to step out of their comfort zone, pursue what they’re passionate about, and learn from Manitoba’s brightest business leaders.
