Twenty One Toys was honoured by the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) and Spin Master on May 29, 2013 at an event highlighting recipients of the Spin Master Innovation Fund. We joined in this celebration of innovation, entrepreneurship and the guidance and support we have received on our journey. CYBF is a national non-profit organization dedicated to growing Canada's nation’s economy one young entrepreneur at a time, and has supported Twenty One Toys through the Spin Master Innovation Fund. Profiling our company from July 2012 through April 2013, CYBF featured Twenty One Toys in their "Where Are They Now?" series.
“We’ve been so excited to see the high quality of candidates and the creativity, passion and outstanding character they’ve demonstrated once again this year. We look forward to witnessing their continued success."
Ilana Ben-Ari, our Lead Designer and Founder, spoke about the challenges in starting up a social purpose business from a CYBF social purpose entrepreneur, in the CYBF Social Purpose Business Video below.
Twenty One Toys is incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation.
“Beyond the major help that the Spin Master Innovation Fund financing and CYBF gives us to carry the company forward, it’s humbling to be recognized for innovation by a major player in the toy space.”
