British Columbia Provides Mentoring Program For Female Entrepreneurs

4 Dec

From our neighbors to the North, I read about a great program in British Columbia.

The B.C. government is providing $100,000 in funding to support the fifth and final year of a mentoring program designed to foster female entrepreneurial and small business growth in the province. The money is directed to the Women’s Enterprise Centre (WEC) which has administered the Taking the Leap to Entrepreneurship Mentoring program since 2007.

The program provides one-on-one mentoring, peer mentoring groups and mentor advisory forums to B.C. female entrepreneurs. Graduates are trained to handle the challenges of running a business, as the program provides business development skills, teaches participants to achieve work/life balance, and directs them to business resources.
