Starting & Growing Your Business


Starter Company

Unveiled in April 2017, the Starter Company Plus program provides mentoring, training and capital for entrepreneurs to start, grow or buy a small business. The program is open no non-students over the age of 18.

Starter Company provides:

  • training and business skills development to help youth prepare to run their own business;
  • advice and mentor opportunities from local business leaders to help get the business up and running;
  • experience running a business that will better position youth to obtain more traditional financing, such as a bank loan, if required; and
  • Where applicable/eligible, a micro-grant to kick-off a new business or expand an existing business.
