ABOUT STONE SOUP

Leap Junction is proud to present, Fanshawe College's annual entrepreneurial networking event, Stone Soup!

With this event we aim to answer the important questions like:

  • Are you a techie chicken?

  • A creative carrot?

  • A bean counter?

  • A seasoned planner?

  • What about a business noodle?

  • Who can help me achieve my career and entrepreneurial goals?

The goal is to introduce you to your talents and to help you find the ones that compliment you. With keynote speaker Ryan Smolkin from Smoke's Poutinerie, we want to equip you with the inspiration to achieve your dreams, followed by a stone soup networking activity where you can find your ingredients and people to help achieve those dreams.

Don't miss your opportunity to find your ingredients and your passions at Stone Soup.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Ryan Smolkin - Smoke's Poutinerie

Founder & Chief Entertainment Officer

​Leap Junction​ presents ​Ryan Smolkin LIVE at Fanshawe College, ​an animated and engaging on-stage presentation on ​March 19th, 2020. ​Open to all students and community members who want to listen to how one Canadian made the world’s fastest growing QSR.

Smolkin will walk attendees and aspiring entrepreneurs through what it takes to build a global brand, the journey into franchising, entrepreneurship, challenges faces and much more.

“It's always inspiring to talk to the young, ambitious students and hear about their big dreams, I just want to remind them they don’t have to think small just because Canada has a small population doesn’t mean their goals have to be small,” said, ​Ryan Smolkin, CEO (Creative Executive Officer) & Founder of Smoke’s Poutinerie. ​“I am totally stoked to be providing students support and insight on how to not just be an entrepreneur but be one of Canada’s industry leaders, excited to bring everyone on the Smoke’s Poutinerie Rock ‘n’ Roll Gravy Train. FIRE IT UP!”

Ryan Smolkin LIVE at Fanshawe College is part of the ​Smoke’s Poutinerie EDU-TAINMENT Programspeaking series launched at Wilfrid Laurier University in the fall of 2018 and will be traveling across the country in 2020 and into 2021. Smolkin is bringing with him a unique opportunity; post-secondary students who attend the session can enter for an exclusive chance to jump aboard the Smoke’s Poutinerie Gravy Train for ​100% discount off all franchise fees. *
