We Are YQQ. That’s the name of a program presented by the Comox Valley’s Hans Peter Meyer. On February 23rd and 24th, as part of the 2015 Speaker Series, Canadian entrepreneur Jayesh Parmar will be in the Valley. He’ll talk about creating a small business and turning it into something bigger that hits a global market.

Goat News spoke with event organizer Hans Peter Meyer to get the lowdown.

Meyer explains his idea behind the event.

He brings up an interesting point, saying there’s a shortage of work for young people in the Valley.
