Every summer, Enterprise Toronto delivers a program designed to foster the entrepreneurial spirit in students aged 15 to 29 who are returning to school in the fall.In place of a summer job, students have the opportunity to be their own boss. All that’s required is a good summer company idea, a detailed business plan, commitment and hard work. In return, students receive hands-on training from successful business people, financial support with awards up to $3,000, and the opportunity to find out if they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur.
