Starter Company Plus is a program from the government of Ontario that helps people over the age of 18 to start their own business, buy or expand an existing business.
The program provides training and coaching through the Small Business Enterprise Centre, paired with advice and mentorship from local business leaders to help get your business up and running; the option to apply for start-up money to kick off a new business or expand your current business; as well as the experience of running a successful business that may help you obtain more traditional business financing, such as bank loan if you so require in the future.
You may be eligible to receive up to $5,000 in grant funding* to put towards your business.
*The amount of grant funding is based on strength of the business plan, economic impact (jobs created), and long term sustainability.
This information session will give you all the information you require to determine if you are eligible, program requirements, available coaching sessions.
