Startup Finance Bootcamp | Sault Ste. Marie

About This Event

Succeed where others fail; get the “Startup Foundations” you need to start and grow a successful business.

Join us in Sault Ste. Marie on June 7, 2017 for an interactive Startup Foundations Bootcamp, to learn where you stand financially, how to manage cash flow, track your business finances day-to-day, and how to leverage this information to plan for your future.

Almost 50% of Canadian entrepreneurs have been rejected by an investor and one in two new Canadian businesses close before they turn five according to a recent Intuit Canada survey*. That’s why Startup Canada, Intuit QuickBooks, and Mastercard Canada in partnership with Startup Sault are joining forces to help connect entrepreneurs, like you, to the training and mentorship to help you build a financially robust and fundable startup!
