Ottawa Universities Get $1M To Launch Young Entrepreneurs Program

The Ontario Centres of Excellence has given $1 million to Ottawa’s Young Entrepreneurs, which is a partnership between Carleton University, Algonquin College, La Cité collégiale and the University of Ottawa.

The funds are intended to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Ottawa. Students and recent alumni can apply for funds to assist in business planning and to help with bridging the gap between initial start up and generating sales.

Each of the four participating universities have programs designed to assist entrepreneurs as they start and grow their businesses. Students interested in learning more about entrepreneurship and the programs available to support entrepreneurs, should contact the business college in their university.
