The evening included a gala reception, dinner, keynote speaker, awards presentation and special guests. The awards were presented in eight categories to deserving companies and individuals in the business community.

The keynote speaker was Shaun Majumder, comedian, television star, Gemini Award winner and social entrepreneur from Burlington, Newfoundland.  Shaun’s presentation theme was rural communities and social enterprise. Rural communities are fighting for their very survival. They are looking for a way to insure a sustainable future.  Shaun explored how one rural Newfoundland community with the help of a native son, who has become a national and international star with “celebrity status”, is working to promote economic development in his hometown. Gemini award winning comedian and TV star Shaun Majumder joined us to tell his story.

This year we also featured special guests award winning, Enfield native, Classified (aka Luke Boyd) and equally accomplished singer, songwriter, David Myles  who collaborated on their recent hit song “Inner Ninja” which has proven to be an international sensation.  Classified and David performed their hit song at the event.

In honour of Luke’s accomplishment and as an inspiration to our young entrepreneurs the Young Entrepreneur Award will also be known as the Inner Ninja Award and was presented by Luke.

This year in addition to highlighting the challenges facing our rural communities we wanted to focus on the entrepreneur and the strength, determination, fortitude, and perseverance that it takes to be an entrepreneur.
