Meet our Starter Company Plus Participants & Grant Recipients!

In November 2019, the Halton Small Business Centre kicked off its second phase of the Starter Company Plus program. The program supports aspiring entrepreneurs looking to build their small businesses. The program provides training, mentoring and an opportunity to receive a micro-grant to help run their business. In January, program participants submitted their business plans for review for a chance to be selected to pitch in front of a panel of judges to win a grant.

Of the top 15 pitches, 10 successful entrepreneurs were selected to receive a grant of $5,000. Meet our grant winners!

  1. Alexandra Corbin – Alexandra Corbin184A8537
  2. Amandeep Jaura – Punjabi Kids Club
  3. Amena Abdelhady – Mama’s Touch Organics
  4. Brendan Jones – Lawncut Landscaping

  7. Ryan Mascarenhas – Goldwyn & Sons Inc
  8. Sean Jeziorski – Right Way Renovations
