WEKH & Futurpreneur

October 18, 2022


Celebrating Young Women Entrepreneurs

This small business week we’re celebrating young women entrepreneurs who are finding success and breaking barriers.

Join WEKH and Futurpreneur to learn more about the resources available to young women entrepreneurs in Canada, and hear directly from women who have received support from Futurpreneur’s programs.

This session will share information about Futurpreneur’s programs including:

  • Startup Program: a core offering for young entrepreneurs ready to launch their business
  • Black Entrepreneur Startup Program: tailored support provided by a team with lived experience
  • Side Hustle Program: for those looking to launch or build a side business

This session will also have a fireside chat with women entrepreneurs who have benefitted from Futurpreneur programs to shine a light on their experiences.
