On March 22, the Professional Immigrant Networks (PINs) program organized an information and networking event, hosted by MaRS Discovery District, to support immigrants seeking to become entrepreneurs. The event, ‘Newcomer Start-ups: Building a successful business,’ featured four successful immigrant entrepreneurs sharing their journey and information on programs, services and supports to help immigrants start their business.
A range of resources and supports are available for immigrant entrepreneurs. These supports cover a wide range of topics and can help immigrants with accessing financing, learning about Canadian business culture and building local connections and networks. Visit TRIEC’s Immigrant Entrepreneurship page to access some of these resources. See the video below for highlights from the event. (Courtesy: New Canadians TV)
