What do you get when you combine a business idea with passion and motivation?A young entrepreneur’s recipe for success.Applications are now open for the sixth annual Kick-Starting Entrepreneurship (KSE) program by Goodman Group Venture Development at Brock. The program is aimed at young entrepreneurs from Niagara looking to expand their business ideas and advance their early-stage entrepreneurial aspirations.“You don’t need to know anything about entrepreneurship,” says Cassie Price, Venture Development Co-ordinator. “All you need is a business idea and to be passionate about it.”The program provides 35 ambitious entrepreneurs aged 18 to 29 with free access to “boot camp” training sessions, resource connections, monthly training seminars to develop skills and knowledge about entrepreneurship and mentorship services. Program participants will also have regular meetings with staff from Venture Development to develop a plan of action and future steps to support business growth.The KSE program helps applicants determine whether or not their business idea is viable and if entrepreneurship is something they want to pursue.Successful candidates will have a strong understanding of what they want to gain out of the program and will be willing to put in the work required to turn their idea into a reality.Interested candidates are encouraged to submit an application for the 2019-20 cohort through the Kick-Starting Entrepreneurship website. For more information, please contact Cassie Price at cprice2@brocku.ca. The deadline to submit is Friday, Sept. 20 at 11:59 p.m.
