How to Start a Business | November 22, 2012
Today CYBF launched a dynamic new online Business Resource Centre to support young entrepreneurs and the mentors who help them along the way. Available at no cost, the Business Resource Centre can be accessed at cybf.ca/resources.
The new Business Resource Centre features specialized multimedia tools such as webinars, ‘how-to’ educational videos and articles that provide much-needed education and support, and the ability to connect with experts and receive valuable business advice.
The highlight of the Business Resource Centre is a new interactive Business Plan Writer, designed to complement CYBF’s application process that aims to ensure more Canadians can benefit from CYBF’s program of start-up financing and mentoring in a straightforward, user-friendly way. The Business Plan Writer was developed by young entrepreneurs in consultation with a CYBF expert Entrepreneur-in-Residence and helps entrepreneurs create their roadmap to success.
The Centre, which features English and French content organized by industry type, location, business stage and audience needs, was developed thanks to generous funding provided by BMO Financial Group.
“Our partnership with BMO Financial Group means that we can help better educate, inform and provide greater opportunities for young entrepreneurs to succeed,” said Terry Campbell, Chief Operating Officer, CYBF. “BMO Financial Group is a strong supporter of small business and youth entrepreneurship, and with their support, CYBF can make these vital tools available to more people who can benefit from them. This has a direct impact on their own success, and, ultimately, Canada’s economic success.”
