Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Do you know a student who wants to learn the ins and outs of being an entrepreneur? Do you know a student that has ever wanted to start their own summer business but just didn’t know where to start?

Students and parents are invited to join the Greater Barrie Business Enterprise Centre on Thursday April 24th, 2014 for an Information Session to learn more about the application and developmental process of the 2014 Summer Company Program.
