Start a business!

Starter Company Logo

Are you between the ages of 18 and 29 and dream of opening your own business?  What is your passion?  What do you love to do?

If you've got a great idea for a business, there's a program called "Starter Company".  This program provides up to $5,000 in funding plus the invaluable guidance of a business mentor.  Offered by the Government of Ontario, Starter Company helps young adults, not attending school full-time.  To qualify for funding of up to $5,000, there's a requirement to contribute at least 25 per cent (cash or in kind) of the grant amount.
