Enterprise Renfrew County (ERC) would like to extend our congratulations to our Starter Company Plus award recipients for their hard work and perseverance. Each of these business owners took part in business training, wrote their business plan, and developed two years of cash flow projections for their business. Each business owner also had opportunity to pitch their business case to a grant review committee who then decided if they would receive the $4,000 grant to help them with their business venture.

ERC would like to thank all of the business owners who took part in the business training. Many choose to participate for the learning and elect not to pitch for a grant. We appreciate your support and participation. We wish everyone good-luck as you venture forth with your business.
