The St. George's Society Toronto Education Committee believes that every entrepreneur with a dream should have the same opportunities for success. To help level the playing field, we have partnered with Ryerson University to launch the Ryerson Venture Zone RVZ Entrepreneur Fund, providing financial support to high potential entrepreneurs in the RVZ Incubator program.
St. George's Society Toronto will match donor support to $50,000.
Building a successful company is challenging for all entrepreneurs. This is especially true for entrepreneurs from racialized and other underrepresented groups in Canada, who often face distinct barriers to their dream of starting a business. The Ryerson Venture Zone (RVZ) provides training, mentorship, space, and purpose-built programming to support new Canadians and visible minorities in Brampton and the GTA as they build their new ventures.
RVZ also provides support for individuals looking to upskill in their careers or pivot career paths through experiential learning opportunities. RVZ is part of Ryerson University's Zone Learning network, one of the most respected university-based innovation ecosystems in the world. For more info, click here.
Join us on December 3rd for the first Industry Challenge Awards Event from Ryerson Venture Zone where Shokeen Singh, St. George's Society Toronto Education Committee Chair, will announce this initiative.
