Are you ready for the entrepreneur life?
Entrepreneurship. It comes with freedom, creativity, and the opportunity turn your 9 to 5 into time spent building your vision for a better community. But there’s more to it. From learning to navigate your finances, to overcoming setbacks and challenging the status quo, life as a business owner can be tough. With the right mindset and support, the outcome and rewards that come with being a business owner can make the start-up journey worthwhile.
Take it from these young entrepreneurs who were able to launch some of the country’s most exciting and innovative businesses with support from Futurpreneur Canada.
“As a broke 25-year old with no assets and a big dream, Futurpreneur granted me a business loan. And to this day, this business has been SOLELY built off of this one financial 'break'. This one loan from them really did give us the ability to do everything we are doing now!”
“A lot of people might think it’s only a $15,000 loan, but it’s not the money that people need to look at for value; they need to know the value in a mentor. Our mentor saved us $40,000 in legal work, and they shared everything that they did wrong when they franchised their business, what they’re doing right today, and they have 24 years of experience. That’s not something you can pay for.”
“It’s one thing to have an idea, but until you actually put it on paper and make sure it will actually make you money and survive is another story. When we knew our business well, it enabled us to start going to others to apply for financing. Being able to pay off loans is probably one of the most rewarding things I’ve done so far. That in itself is kind of a milestone, that our business that’s not even two years old is able to pay down debt.”
