The Leeds Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre proudly launches its annual Summer Company program on
Thursday, May 30th. This year 9 young entrepreneurs in Leeds Grenville will experience being their own boss this
summer. We have students represented across Leeds Grenville.
The Summer Company is funded by the Government of Ontario. The program provides hands-on business training and
mentoring. The students are awarded up to $3,000. These funds help enterprising young people start up and run their
own summer business.
The participants will receive:
- An award of up to $1,500 in early summer to help with business start-up costs, and an additional $1,500 award
in the fall upon the successful completion of their Summer Company business and proof of returning to school;
- An opportunity to meet every 2 weeks with a local business mentoring group for support and advice on
operating their summer business.
This year’s Summer Company participants include:
