Precare.ca, Raphael Gotlieb
Raphael Gotlieb is set to go global as an entrepreneur to the G20 Summit in Saudi Arabia with the rest of the team. “As entrepreneurs and SME’s create most jobs in G20 countries, and their role is further increasing with globalization and digitalization, I believe tomorrow will be shaped by initiatives like G20 YEA today. In this new reality and changes brought on by the current pandemic, with economies shrinking significantly, erasing growth of past decades, I believe promoting entrepreneurship and representing the country I call home for 17 years is my honour. I am also passionate about global expansion and improving other economies as I see myself as a world citizen. I lived in several countries as a result of the surgical career of my father.
After leaving my native Los Angeles following the Northridge Earthquake in 1994, I spent some time in Belgium before immigrating to Israel, encouraged by a new Middle East’s vision following the Oslo Accord peace treaty. Strengthened by these experiences, I have seized the chance to explore new cultures. Having studied at the National University of Singapore for a year and travelled and explored over 70 countries, I am passionate about the opportunity to work on projects with global impact. These life experiences have not only humbled me but have allowed me to respect, understand and communicate across cultures. I want to represent Canada as a leader that demonstrates compassion and promotes socioeconomic improvements for G20 countries and globally.” -Raphael Gotlieb.
Gotlieb is representing Precare.ca at the Summit. “Precare.ca is an innovative web-based platform providing free, evidence-based health education for patients.

Ghalia Aamer, TalkMaze
I love entrepreneurship. I started my first company, Toon Tutors, when I was 13 years old and struggled to find resources to help me build my business. After months of self guided research, I was able to craft a business plan and build a team. Over the past six years, I have learned a tremendous amount about business and my passion for entrepreneurship has flourished. I also took part in the Junior Achievement Company Program for three years before launching TalkMaze in 2019. I’m now 19 years old and know I still have a lot more to learn.
3/4 people are afraid of public speaking, yet resources to combat the fear are limited and expensive. TalkMaze is here to change that with an interactive, digital platform that has high quality resources and training to help people around the globe build effective communication skills.
Upbio, Mohammed Assafiri
Business wise : As CEO of Upbio, Mohammed came up with the idea of mixing chocolate and theine (caffeine’s cousin). Not only did he uniquely come up with the idea behind the company, but he’s also the negotiator with distributors and providers to ensure the best prices for a new Quebec product. The company’s mission is to provide customers with the best chocolate products that have not yet been exploited at competitive prices. Upbio is part of the movement that encourages customers to buy organic, buy local, and be environmentally conscious of their decisions.
Our stimulant products are a combination of organic foods praised for their health benefits (cocoa, theine, and essential oils). The chocolates are produced and packaged in a workshop in Quebec. Similarly, research and development are also carried out entirely in Quebec.
‘m thrilled to be a Canadian representative, given that this is a product made, produced, and sold, solely in this beautiful country!
I believe the Summit G20 YEA is an ideal environment that will provide me with all the tools to learn, grow, and expand in ways I could have never envisioned. However, with that said, I am excited and inspired to see and take in the unique experiences of every other international delegate- the good, the bad, the sweet, and the sour. I believe every story shared is one worth listening to.

UpstartED, Céline Godard Aron
UpstartED is a Canadian nonprofit whose mission is to empower middle and high school students to thrive in a complex world as positive change makers.
We design experiential learning programs to equip students with the mindsets, skills and self-confidence required to become responsible social entrepreneurs who build a better world, for all.
As an immigrant, it is an honor to represent the country who welcomed me and my family 5 years ago. Especially this year as the theme resonates a lot with my personal journey.
I grow up in a difficult environment in which becoming an entrepreneur is not really the norm but rather an unreachable dream. I strongly believe that the human ability to influence its trajectory is immense. Nothing is set in stone. I believe my humble story can inspire young people who do not know what role they can play and what impact they can have on society.
At UpstartED, our raison-d’être is to help the youngest members of our society discover their potential and channel it towards making an impact.
Being part of this year’s delegation is an amazing opportunity for our nonprofit to build new connections and hopefully bring our programs to more marginalized youth around the world.
Unfortunately, our work has never been so direly needed. We are embracing the new reality and are committed to helping youth realize that they have infinite potential.
