Startup Canada Young Entrepreneur Award
Cameron Ritchie | founder of HomeWurk
HomeWurk, a revolutionary Fredericton-based platform. It takes odd jobs and chores off the hands of busy people and trusts them with hard-working students. In less than a year, HomeWurk has empowered more than one-hundred-and-fifty students with flexible employment, useful life skills, and helped them to save money for post-secondary education. Just since winning the regional Startup Canada Award in Spring 2018, HomeWurk has connected students to more than four-hundred-and-eighty jobs and collected more than seventy-two-thousand dollars in revenue. As a seventeen-year-old university freshman, Cameron has big plans to integrate HomeWurk into cities across Canada. He’s an exemplary young entrepreneur with a bright future as a leader in Canada’s gig economy.
