VentureStart is an exciting new program that supports entrepreneurs who have developed innovations or ideas for business startups. The program is designed to enhance the success rate of startup enterprises in Southern Ontario through business training for technology entrepreneurs, and offers an opportunity of matching seed financing up to $30,000 to launch each new venture. To be eligible for VentureStart, the entrepreneur must be a university or college graduate of a science, technology, engineering or mathematics program, and must live in southern Ontario. Full details of the program and eligibility are available at www.venturestart.ca.
The program is comprised of two phases, a Business Skills Development phase and a Business Launch Support phase. For entrepreneurs who successfully complete the first phase, RIC Centre and its partners from the Ontario Network of Excellence (ONE) will provide mentoring by their Entrepreneurs in Residence, together with an extensive portfolio of key support services typically required for the successful launch and operation of a new business.
