Summer Company Program 2017 Youth Entrepreneur Program Inspires and Enables
Pembroke, ON: Enterprise Renfrew County is looking for student entrepreneurs who want to start their own business this summer! Youth entrepreneurs are encouraged to plan ahead and reach out to Enterprise Renfrew County (ERC) to learn about the Summer Company Program and begin developing their business plan now. Summer Company is funded by the Government of Ontario to enable young people to start a business, create their own summer job and to follow their entrepreneurial dreams with funding support of up to $3,000.
The program is available to students between the ages of 15 and 29 who are presently in school, and returning to school in the fall of 2017, to start and operate their own business. Successful applicants can receive up to $1,500 for business start-up costs and, upon successful completion of the program, they will receive another award of up to $1,500. Summer Company is administered by Enterprise Renfrew County on behalf of the Province of Ontario. ERC Business Consultant, Colleen Sadler, says; “it offers a wonderful incentive to young people who are interested in being entrepreneurial.”
ERC staff will assist any young entrepreneur to develop their business concepts and/or explore some examples of past Summer Company business types from across the County of Renfrew and other parts of Ontario.
By participating in the program, participants will receive business training, mentoring and assistance from local business leaders that will support them in the day-to-day operation of their enterprise.
Summer Company has been available in Renfrew County for sixteen years and has guided almost 200 young entrepreneurs to business success.
Applications are now open and, as Summer Company is a highly competitive program with limited spaces available, we encourage students to contact us at the earliest opportunity.
