1. Program Description

Through the Summer Company program, students can get start-up money to kick-off a new summer business, along with advice and mentorship from local business leaders to help get the business up and running.

Eligible participants receive up to $1500 in start-up funds and business coaching from the Small Business Centre Advisors throughout the summer. Students who complete the program and meet all the requirements receive an additional $1500 when they return to school.

A limited number of spaces are available each year and the application process is competitive. Interested students are encouraged to visit the Summer Company website for additional information.
