About Business Owner’s Toolbox

What is it?

The Business Owner’s Toolbox (BOT) is a central hub that provides a comprehensive package of foundational knowledge, access points, and resources required to start and scale a business in Canada.

Why BOT?

After listening to hundreds of leading entrepreneurs in our network, we identified the need of an interactive platform that provides foundational knowledge to entrepreneurs as well as relevant connections within the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

From incorporation guidance to eliciting connections between entrepreneurs and seasoned mentors, the Business Owner’s Toolbox provides the resources that startups need to start, all in one place.


Modules

BOT comprises nine easy-to-understand modules that will walk entrepreneurs through the journey of having a full-proof business plan. These educational modules will have tons of resources, tips and tricks, and access points shared by leading entrepreneurs from coast to coast to coast. 

Testimonials

- Naina Kansal, Entrepreneur Success Manager

We know that Canada’s aspiring and existing entrepreneurs have the ideas, passion and drive to succeed in our entrepreneurial landscape.

We are helping every founder navigate the support that exists across the entire ecosystem through one solution: Business Owner’s Toolbox.
