The first program to emerge from research completed on the Women’s Economic Advancement Project, The Ignite Award provides an opportunity that’s currently missing in our region: an award that will not only provide the funding women entrepreneurs need to finance their businesses, but the mentoring and support they need at key stages of their development to build and grow their businesses long term.
In order to provide Ignite cash awards in September 2015, we’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to build a $30,000 seed fund for women entrepreneurs in Guelph and Wellington County.
You can help us change the face of business in our region by contributing to this campaign. All funds raised will be used to fund women entrepreneurs and their businesses, provide mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs and professionals, and administer the program.
