Are you planning to start a new business soon? Or are you already running an early-stage business that could use a boost? The Toronto Public Library is once again running a discounted business development program, with eight-week programs beginning in April at three branches - Northern District, Albion and Agincourt.
The Business Inc. program is offered through a partnership between the Toronto Public Library, the City of Toronto's Economic Development & Culture Division (ECD) and the Toronto Business Development Centre. Topics covered will include market research, financial management, pitching your business and more.
With funding support from the Toronto Public Library Foundation, the Business Inc. program only costs participants $100+HST (a Toronto Public Library card is required). Applications are due on Thursday March 28, 2013, with the available spots limited to 20 participants per location.
