Local events showcase student businesses

A couple of upcoming events around the region will showcase the business talents of student entrepreneurs as they launch their summer businesses.
Entrepreneurs from the Small Business Centre, YMCA, College Boreal and Nottawasaga Futures will highlight their businesses and test the market for their products and services at the Staples Summer Company Event, scheduled July 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Staples Barrie North (561 Bayfield Street) and Staples Barrie South (36 Barrie View Drive). Customers will receive a 10 per cent discount on their purchase at Staples during the event.
Also, more than 30 young entrepreneurs from across Simcoe County will showcase their new businesses, network with other entrepreneurs, and meet members of the community at the Summer Company Launch, Wednesday, July 11 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Southshore Community Centre, 205 Lakeshore Drive.
This provincial program provides aspiring student entrepreneurs with business training and mentorship in addition to grant funding of up to $3,000 to start and run their own summer business. The Small Business Centre delivers the Summer Company as part of the Province’s ONE Network for entrepreneurs.
