Empowerment through Entrepreneurship

We are thrilled to announce our support of the Syrian Canadian Foundation on an exciting initiative – the Newcomer Entrepreneur Women (N.E.W) Venture.

The N.E.W Venture is a 6-month intensive program that offers participants the opportunity to develop their business idea into a viable business. We do this through weekly training sessions, 1:1 mentorship, support with access to funding and ongoing networking and in-person events.

The program will kick-off in September 2024 and we are currently looking for newcomer women and refugees with a business idea and an interest in launching their own business to join our upcoming cohort.

Specifically we are only accepting self-identified women, 18 years or older who meet the following criteria:

  • Resident of Ontario
  • Permanent residents, convention refugees, work-permit holders & Ukrainian temporary residents
  • CLB Level 5/6 or higher
  • Existing business or business idea¬†

Please join us for a 45-min information session where we will share the details of the program including a program overview, details on what to expect and how to apply.

Multiple session dates are available.
