The Brampton Small Business Accelerator Program is a great opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs and existing business owners to expand their knowledge and potentially receive a grant valued at up to $5,000.00.
Participants in the program have received training and mentorship over a 12-week period. They have completed a business plan and financials and if they score at least 80% on this plan and financial they will have an opportunity to pitch their idea for a grant.
When you volunteer as a judge for the Small Business Accelerator Program, you support entrepreneurs and existing business owners in our community by examining their businesses ideas and goals. Judges provide constructive yet positive feedback to our rising entrepreneurs and their developing businesses.
Judges review business plans and listen to short pitches and evaluate entrepreneurs on a range of criteria including innovation, feasibility, presentation skills, and reflection.
The exposure to real professionals in the community serves as an impactful touch point for our entrepreneurs. _
