What can you expect from the Élite Program?

2 unforgettable years

12 group stays, nearly 800 hours of training at the École d’Entrepreneurship de Beauce, located in Saint-Georges. You will be accompanied by a dynamic and dedicated team, including a coach who will help you take action.

A community of solidarity welcomes you

The EEB community includes over 1,000 entrepreneurs across Quebec. We can help you find answers to your questions, expand your business network and extend your learning experience.

Teachers like you've never had before!

Learning from Marc Dutil of Canam, Geneviève Biron of Groupe Biron or Jean Laflamme of Meubles Southshore, is an in-depth sharing of experience that allows you to progress rapidly. Our entrepreneurs-coaches are volunteers and want to contribute to your growth.

A close-knit cohort

You will be surrounded by twenty or so other entrepreneurs who are experiencing similar challenges to yours and, together, you will grow and help each other. You will create bonds for life.

No exams, only learning

At EEB, you'll choose almost all of your assignments: you'll apply the learning that makes sense for you and your business. And you'll be measuring yourself.

Challenges to surpass yourself

Each Élite cohort is called upon to complete a community challenge because we believe in the importance of giving back. And because we believe that physical fitness is essential, we will accompany you on your way to a more active life, to reach new heights.

360° support

Workshops, coaching, sports and other activities, adapted accommodation and meals: it's all included!

Your cohort definitely becomes your safety net. A net in which you can fish for best practices, share your concerns and successes, ask for help and know that there will always be a helping hand.
