“This year we really focused on the entrepreneur and their potential for business leadership. Each High Flier impressed us with their drive to succeed, passion for business and positive, can-do attitude. We also considered their commitment to the business and its opportunity for growth. The High Fliers selected have the desire to learn and to apply those learnings to business growth” says Nicole Osmond, Director of CYBF Atlantic. “CYBF has more than 16 years’ of experience supporting young entrepreneurs to reach their potential. We are thrilled to play a role in their business success.”

It intends to attract Nova Scotia business leaders of tomorrow, providing them with the resources they need to make their ambitions a reality. Deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. on Oct 25, 2013 at

I am looking forward to seeing what this program has to offer and taking my business to the next level!
