Creating opportunity and community for Ontario young entrepreneurs

This program has been designed to support community, product, retail, and service-based companies with at least $5,000 a month in recurring revenue or $60,000 in sales.

Designed as a hybrid (virtual/in-person) program, accepted companies will be invited to Toronto for two multi-day, in-person sessions for a series of intensive workshops and one-on-one meetings with Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs), investors, and other support organizations. While not in Toronto, companies will meet virtually with their EIRs based in Toronto.
