The first of our City-funded events, an entrepreneurial workshop, took place on April 29th 2023, and was facilitated by Social Enterprise Officer, Angela Itchon, and Financial Inclusion & Entrepreneurship professor, Dr Maggie Zeng. Praises poured in from participants who described it as a “beautiful and meaningful workshop”, where they were able to learn and keep themselves motivated in maximizing their income potentials.
Participants were first able to identify and set their current business goals, the resources that they have and the possible strengths and weaknesses of their forthcoming journey in achieving these goals. The second half of the workshop was focused on exploring business models, accessing financial services, and understanding the Canadian business environment. The entrepreneurial workshop series aims to provide a well-rounded experience for aspiring entrepreneurs and artisans alike to support their business model and strategic planning.
It’s not too late to attend the next event. Eligible individuals with start-ups or small businesses looking to gain some of these entrepreneurial skills are welcome to sign up to our Good4People community for free. The option for remote workshop attendance is also available, with complete access to extensive training and mentorship whether attendees join us in-person or online. At the end of the workshop series, a certificate of completion will be awarded to all participants to acknowledge the skills and achievements they have strengthened.
As an international organization, Good Neighbors Canada is proud to support domestic projects that serve the community and aid in growth. Once again, we thank our partner, the City of Toronto, for their support for our Good4People initiative, and we look forward to supporting our local entrepreneurial community this year.
