SMARTstartGP

Grande Prairie, Alberta – Community Futures Grande Prairie & Region is launching a new SMARTstart program for entrepreneurs in the community.

This entrepreneur training program was developed to address small business start up needs in our evolving community and increase the chances of the business’ success rate. It is challenging to go beyond 3-5 years for a small business – only 35% succeed, however with training and resources, 80-90% succeed beyond 5 years.

This 50-60 hour program is offered over 8 months with a combination of online training, workshops and pairing with a mentor from the community.

If you are a small business owner in their first three years or an entrepreneur who needs their ideas transformed into action, apply now! Applications open October 25, 2021 and close on December 22, 2021. www.smartstartyourbusiness.ca

If you are a business owner with more than 3 years experience running a successful business and want to help other entrepreneurs, apply now to be a mentor! www.smartstartyourbusiness.ca
