Want to launch your business AND get a chance to win 500$?  

This dynamic, free* 4-part series will supercharge your entrepreneurial dreams! Led by experienced business coaches, you’ll receive guidance in refining your business concept and validating your business idea. At the core of our program is the Business Model Canvas: a visual tool that will help build the foundation of your business. You’ll learn how to outline key opportunities, identify activities and strategies, and understand initial financial projections for your business.  

Here’s the kicker! In the last session of the bootcamp, you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your idea and compete for a chance to win $500, generously provided by Desjardins Centre-ville. Note, to be eligible to win the $500, participants need to attend at least 3 out of 4 sessions and the pitch is mandatory.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to fuel your entrepreneurial journey. 

Are you considering the launch of a business, whether product or service-based? Are you eager to ensure that you possess the essential components necessary for developing your business before taking the plunge? Do you want to solidify your ideas within a structured and guided learning environment?  

In this series, you’ll gain insights into what a business model is and discover strategies to stand out in a competitive landscape. You’ll learn effective methods to test your ideas, create a visual map of your business, and communicate its unique value proposition.  

Whether you’re eager to create your own products through research, development, and manufacturing or offer a range of quality services, this workshop series will help you formulate a strategy to success!
