We’re extremely excited to announce a new addition to Startup Communities: Startup Grey Bruce! This new community aims to increase the recognition of the economic contributions of entrepreneurs and startups across Grey Bruce. Additionally by enabling the entrepreneurship ecosystem to better support local entrepreneurs, Startup Grey Bruce positions Grey Bruce as a dynamic and supportive place to grow a rural-based startup.
A word from our new Community Leader
“We’re so excited to join Startup Canada Communities,” said Jennifer Christie, Community Leader at Startup Grey Bruce. “We have a vibrant and growing community of entrepreneurs and startups. This partnership connects us to a national network to help entrepreneurs to grow thriving businesses in Grey and Bruce Counties.”
Empowering Canada at the hyperlocal level
Rural regions in Canada provide valuable opportunities to the entrepreneurship ecosystem. Most notably, rural founders challenge the odds and offers disruptive, innovative solutions that help empower communities at a hyperlocal level. However, rural entrepreneurship experiences unique challenges when starting up and scaling up. With our newest Startup Community, we hope to champion, connect, and support rural entrepreneurs across the country in order to create a more inclusive Canadian startup ecosystem.
Startup Communities is Startup Canada’s flagship program that supports and connects grassroots networks for entrepreneurship at the local and industry level. Startup Communities brings local entrepreneurship organizations for collaboration, connects local entrepreneurs with a national network, and provides entrepreneurs with opportunities.
