From Handmade Clothing to Music Video Production, JVS Toronto’s young entrepreneurs are brimming with ideas.
Not many students get to start a company this summer unless they’re participating in JVS Toronto’s Summer Company, funded by the Ontario Government. Toronto-area high school and post-secondary students have a unique experience developing their own business through workshops and one-on-one mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs.
Participants learn the nuts and bolts of running a successful business including:
- Writing a business strategy and practicing their sales pitch
- Identifying their target market and learning about customer relations
- Developing their financial literacy and learning bookkeeping and invoicing
- Taking advantage of networking opportunities and selling their brand
