The Saugeen Shores Business Enterprise Centre (SSBEC) wants to help students (ages 15 – 29) start and run their own company this summer. As a service provider for the Ontario Summer Company program, the SSBEC is looking for Bruce County students who want to be their own boss! You must apply before May 7, 2012.
From lawn care services to ice cream sales, from manufacturing hand sewn purses to producing videos, the Summer Company program helps students create the business that they want to own.
Running since 2001, the Summer Company program is based on providing hands on coaching from leading business people around from Bruce County. Successful applicants are mentored in every aspect of running a business, from implementing a business plan, to marketing, to managing finances and even time management skills.
Summer Company not only teaches students the mechanics of running a business, but it also offers financial support. Successful applicants will receive up to $3000 to help their company succeed, with up to $1,500 to cover start-up costs.
The combination of mentoring and financial support helps mitigate the risks that most entrepreneurs face.
So if you are a student, or you know a student, who has a vision, a dream, and dedication, check out the Summer Company program and join over 3,000 high school, college and university students from all areas of Ontario who have already let their entrepreneurial spirit soar through SUMMER COMPANY.
