Become your Own Boss Woman!

Have you ever thought that your side hustle could be a profitable business? My Start Up is an entrepreneur program where participants learn foundational skills, techniques and business training that includes marketing, financial management, pitch delivery, networking opportunities and more. This program serves women of colour, Indigenous women, women living in poverty, single mothers, newcomers, criminalized women or those who’ve experienced trauma, mental health and substance use struggles. These women are often quite resilient, resourceful, and throughout their lives have had to find creative solutions to earn an income- the very qualities that make successful entrepreneurs!

“Women who have been in conflict with the law can become successful entrepreneurs when given the opportunity to develop essential skills that can help them to rebuild their lives.”
