Saskatoon, Saskatchewan - Our panel of judges have chosen the Top 3 business success story videos in the Just Watch ME! video contest. We need the public’s help to determine the winner!

Since 2011, Community Futures Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Program (EDP) has been proud to present the Just Watch ME! video contest. This contest is open to entrepreneurs with self-declared disabilities or ongoing health conditions operating a business in rural Manitoba or rural Saskatchewan.

“Entrepreneurs are asked to submit a short two to three minute video sharing their journey of business success.” explains Susan Bater, EDP Manager and spokesperson for the contest. “Our panel of business leaders judge the videos and our Top 3 entrepreneurs in the Seasoned Category move on to the public voting stage.”

Our panel of judges from the business community is pleased to announce the Top 3 Seasoned Entrepreneurs for 2016:
