Start-Up Workshops

Are You Ready for Entrepreneurship?

If you have a business idea but are not sure you are ready to start a business, this workshop is for you. In this introductory session, we will provide you with the information to help you decide when, and if, owning a business is right for you. 

Roadmap for Success

If you have a specific business idea, or you’ve been in business for a few years but have never written a business plan, this workshop is for you. This three-hour session introduces you to the basic components of a good business plan. It will help you move forward with confidence, learn how to conduct informative marketing research and explore how to create financial plans that will support business viability.

NextStep to Success

The NextStep to Success Business Plan Learning Series is designed to provide guidance, expertise, and peer mentoring at an early start-up phase of business to Aboriginal women who are ready to develop a comprehensive business plan that could be used for financing purposes. The unique circle delivery format has been developed specifically to meet the needs of Aboriginal women. Final business plans can be submitted for review and feedback. We work in partnership with local band and economic development agencies to deliver the training series.

Please contact us at to inquire about hosting the series in your community.
