Be Build Brand

Be Build Brand



Be.Build.Brand. (B3) is a 10-week entrepreneurship program for Toronto Community Housing tenants between the ages of 18 and 29. The program supports entrepreneurial ideas in the pre-incubation stage and helps participants to turn their ideas into viable business plans. The program offers exposure to relevant entrepreneurship content, industry guest speakers, and capacity-building opportunities.

Participants will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win seed funds for their business venture.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year's program will be held online.
