As a convener, Startup Canada connects together entrepreneurs and other players in Canada’s entrepreneurial ecosystem (such as support organizations, private sector leaders, and government officials). Startup Canada is delighted to bring this philosophy on a global scale through the Business Owner’s Toolbox as the building blocks for a national entrepreneurship community.

Startup Canada’s BOT is a free and comprehensive collection of online guides focused on topics that matter to entrepreneurs, such as pre-launch, financing, pitching, legal, and many more. Each guide walks through the fundamentals of everything an entrepreneur needs to know to set up a business for success in Canada. This is just the beginning. BOT serves as the foundation of Startup Canada’s future vision in curating the best sources of support from other organizations and businesses.

“There are so many fantastic resources currently available to help entrepreneurs start a business, but this creates choice paralysis. The real challenge that entrepreneurs face is knowing where to look and what to find,” said Kayla Isabelle, CEO at Startup Canada. “With the Business Owner’s Toolbox, Startup Canada is here for the long-term to make the process more efficient and give entrepreneurs even more connections and time to actually build their business.”

BOT is presented in partnership with Ownr, UPS, Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), and Cisco, and is a testament to the commitment of private sector leaders in supporting thousands of entrepreneurs to start and grow a business in Canada.
