Information Session: Middlesex Youth Entrepreneur Initiative
September 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Based on our current funding agreement with FedDev Ontario, youth entrepreneurship is one of the key priorities for investment. Through sponsorship provided by RBC and Middlesex County — with support from the Middlesex Workforce Development Partnership — Community Futures Middlesex is hosting the Middlesex Youth Entrepreneur Initiative (MYEI).
The MYEI will enroll several Middlesex County youth in an entrepreneurship training program — delivered by GoForth Institute — to develop and refine their business skills in a variety of areas. Participants will start by communicating a feasible business idea, as outlined in the application form. To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be aged 18 to 39, excluding those who turn 40 on or before December 31, 2021
- Reside in Middlesex County, except the City of London
- Have a feasible idea for a business not currently operating
- Complete and submit the Business Idea Application
To launch the MYEI, Community Futures Middlesex will be hosting an information session over Zoom on September 9, 2021. Join us at noon to learn what it takes to be an entrepreneur and how to participate.
Full details of the MYEI — including deadlines to submit the application and complete the entrepreneurship training program — will be available on our website following the information session.
