This summer, the Ministry of Small Business and Consumer Services is giving motivated students the opportunity to create a job they’re passionate about.
If they come up with a business idea of their own, students could score up to $3,000 to bring their vision to life. Ministry reps also will hook students up with a mentor to guide them and learn what it takes to get on top in the business world.
A summer, short-term business possibly could lead to even greater opportunities in the future.
If you don’t want to settle for another boring summer, contact the “Summer Company” at www.sbe.gov.on.ca/ontcan/sbe/youth_summerco_index.jsp
Space is limited, so come up with a plan and download an application as soon as possible.
