Investing in Youth

Invest in youth

The Small Business Enterprise Centre supports youth entrepreneurship in the South Georgian Bay region.  For young entrepreneurs we are proud to deliver two youth granting programs – Summer Company and Starter Company.  The Summer Company program is a chance for Ontario students between the ages of 15 and 29 to become their own boss during the summer.  In May 2008, the Small Business Enterprise Centre launched Summer Company.   We have just completed our sixth year of administering this successful program.  We also offer the Starter Company program for young entrepreneurs.  This program is for youth between the ages of 18 and 29 who are no longer in school and want to launch a full-time business.  Both programs offer start-up funding, training, coaching and mentorship.

Our business consultants are happy to assist and provide advice to young entrepreneurs in our community.  Please contact the Centre for additional information and resources.
