Please join MPP Rod Jackson, the City of Barrie, and the Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation (MEDI) on Tuesday July 10th from 11am - 2pm for an Open House at the Greater Barrie Business Enterprise Centre.
Not only is this an opportunity to re-discover your Enterprise Centre, it is an opportunity to celebrate and support the next generation of entrepreneurs. Come meet the 2012 Summer Company students, as they showcase their products and services. Official program launch is at 11:30.
2012 Summer Company student business owners include; Rebecca Rupke - iTutor; Lily Mullins - Lily Muffins; Tyler Rodgers - Top Dogs Street Meat; Regan Blake - Old Man Winter; and Kyra Keckes - Tree Shirts.
2011 Summer Company graduate, Brittany Bell, will be sharing her experiences with the current participants. Despite having no prior entrepreneurial experience, the Georgian College marketing student ran a very successful car-detailing business last summer, taking her service directly to customers for on-the-spot cleaning.
Light lunch and celebratory cake will be available, so join us for the fun! We're located above the bus depot in beautiful downtown Barrie, 24 Maple Ave.
"Things are finally happening! All I can say is persistance and patience really paid off, and I couldnt have done this without your support along the way. Thank you or everything so far, and I cant wait to continue working with you as this exciting venture continues to grow! I'll be in touch soon!
Our grand opening is on Dec10th. I hope to see you there!!"
