Congratulations to the first start-up company PLUS Grant receivers!

Six Mississauga entrepreneurs are winners of a live pitch contest and each received a grant prize of $ 5,000 each as part of their participation in the Starter Company PLUS program of the City of Mississauga, provided by the Mississauga Business Enterprise Center (MBEC) of the city.

The successful recipients of grants competed to be selected to present their ideas to a panel of judges. They delivered a pitch live on a range of different business initiatives, including an online women's fashion store, a food production company that wanted to grow the product line, a security company that expanded the business to Mississauga, an artist and two therapeutic health services. Receiving program training, mentoring and awarding $ 5,000 will help them with their initial start-up costs or allow them to invest the scholarship money to expand their existing businesses.

"I had a great experience working with MBEC and the Starter Company PLUS program while I was working on getting my physiotherapy clinic up and running … I received invaluable personal assistance with many aspects of my business, from setting up the business plan, financials and marketing strategies for social media, and was able to successfully compete for the $ 5000 Grant, which was the key to being able to purchase signs for my clinic windows and clinic equipment that I could immediately buy and use ", says Lynda McClatchie, PT, MSc, CertMDT, owner of Elevation Physiotherapy & Wellness
