“Passion into Profit” is a joint collaboration between LaunchYU, Back 2 Basickz and funded by the York U TD Community Engagement Centre. The initiative is aimed at helping individuals who reside in The Jane and Finch Community obtain the skills and knowledge that they will need to become successful entrepreneurs.
Participants in this program will learn the key essentials of launching and running a successful business and will also receive continued support once they have entered the market with their business idea.
The first cohort will go through the project beginning in February 2018, with a maximum of 12 participants in the cohort. Upon completion of the program participants will have the opportunity to present to a "Community Den" where their ideas will be examined, the best business ideas from each group will be selected based on the business potential of their idea and be awarded up to $1000 to help get their business started.
