Black Entrepreneurship Program (BEP)

We received a grant of over $1.3 million from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and hosted our first in-person event since the pandemic. The BEP launch event was held on February 21st at the University of Toronto, Scarborough.

Thanks to the BEP Ecosystem Fund, we are partnering with the University of Toronto, Scarborough to support and mentor over 170 young Black entrepreneurs across Canada. We kicked off the first cohort on March 22nd and registration is currently ongoing for the second and third cohorts.
