Dr Paul E. Garfinkel Award for Entrepreneurial Achievement Winners 2015
Rise Asset Development is pleased to announce the winners of the fourth annual Dr. Paul E. Garfinkel Awards for Entrepreneurial Achievement.
This annual event acknowledges the leadership and inspiring contributions of Dr. Paul E. Garfinkel, through his role as founding President and CEO of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Dr. Garfinkel is also recognized for his leading role in the advocacy for psychiatric science and reducing the stigma associated with mental health challenges and addictions.
Due to various societal influences and stigma, traditional means of business start-up are not offered to those who perhaps have the most drive to become financially independent. The Garfinkel Awards are part of a strategy to raise awareness surrounding this issue.
Congratulations to this yearâ€™s award recipients. We look forward to seeing their careers create more exciting opportunities in the future.
