2019 Summer Company Program
Join us in congratulating two North Dundas student run summer businesses that were awarded a provincial grant as part of the Summer Company program.
The students earned this opportunity through a provincial grant that is offered through the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre. The grant program offers business training, mentorship opportunities and financial aid to students during their summer breaks.
“Once again, we have a wide variety of businesses and a group of young but enthusiastic entrepreneurs. It will be exciting for us to assist them as they jump into the world of entrepreneurship,” says Candy Pollard, Business Consultant of the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.
- Mess’ Crazy Creatures, which specializes in stuffed animals, food plushes, pins and puppets is run by Sarah Messervey from Morewood. More details and social media links can be found here: http://businessenterprisecentre.ca/news/mess-crazy-creatures-stuffed-animals-food-plushes-pins-and-puppets/
