Every summer, The Small Business Centre fosters the entrepreneurial spirit of students aged 15 to 29 who are returning to school in the fall through its Summer Company program. In place of a summer job, students have the opportunity to be their own boss. All that’s required is a good summer company idea, a detailed business plan, commitment and hard work. In addition to hands-on training and mentorship from local business owners, successful students receive financial support with awards up to $3,000.
