As Canada continues to undergo drastic demographic change, millennials and their needs and ambitions are becoming an important topic as society grapples with accommodating a demographic radically different from its predecessors. From politicians embracing social media to major corporations spending billions to create products specifically for millennials, every sector of economic, political, and social life is undergoing rapid change to make itself more millennial-friendly. Every sector except banking that is. While banks have been busy innovating … Continue reading Underserved and Ignored: Millennials and the Rise of Financial Technology | By Nenad Dumanovic

Greed: How Much Money is Needed for Happiness? | By Abisola Ojikutu

Recently, I can’t seem to avoid one question that keeps coming up in my conversations: “How much of an annual salary will make you happy?”  My roommate asked me this question on a quiet Sunday evening as we both had a casual chat about our work week, discussing the highs and lows of being a recent, yet not so recent, university graduate. “Well…I have very expensive taste,” I … Continue reading Greed: How Much Money is Needed for Happiness? | By Abisola Ojikutu

The Startup Grind: My Year in Review | By Neha Kumari

Startups seem so glamorous these days, don’t they? We have all read the familiar narrative of an awkward twenty-something tucked away in his dorm, hacking on the next million dollar, or if he’s lucky, billion dollar platform that is sure to disrupt an entire industry. We see headlines of some of the most outrageous startup ideas being funded and achieving astronomical valuations pre-profit. Throw in Oscar nominated … Continue reading The Startup Grind: My Year in Review | By Neha Kumari

You, Me, and that Mentor | By Nitasha Happy

As a freshman university student, I wasn’t confident in the direction I wanted my career to go. Of course there were students who knew exactly what they wanted to do and had mapped out every step of their academic journey.

3 Worthwhile Government Resources Your Company Isn’t Taking Advantage Of | By Nenad Dumanovic

It’s rather obvious that regulatory barriers, taxes, and legal hurdles are no friend of the aspiring entrepreneur. The challenge of creating a product from scratch and building a successful company from nothing is more than strenuous enough without the added burden of tax and regulatory compliance. At best, a lot of entrepreneurs ignore the government and operate as if it doesn’t exist; at worst, many entrepreneurs … Continue reading 3 Worthwhile Government Resources Your Company Isn’t Taking Advantage Of | By Nenad Dumanovic

Welcome to Business at The Wanderer | By Neha Kumari

“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” My hip-hop fascination aside, for me, this is one of the most powerful and empowering proclamations, demonstrating that success in business involves building your brand and constantly fighting complacency. Having business acumen doesn’t mean that you need to be a finance graduate, or have years of experience running a Fortune 500 company. Case in point, Jay-Z has … Continue reading Welcome to Business at The Wanderer | By Neha Kumari
