Thanks to Georgian College ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SMALL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT Program for sponsoring two ‘TREPDesks!

Introducing one of Barrie’s newest ‘Trep –  JON GROOTVELD. Jon was part of a class participating in the ‘TrepTalks program  where classes come down to The Creative Space and learn from other experienced entrepeneurs.  He is taking a few courses at Georgian College and hoping to start his own delivery company for seniors and busy professionals!

Jon popped in today to work on some marketing materials.

Here’s the scoop on the ‘TREPDesk Program…

We have introduced an amazing opportunity for local business and organizations to support our young enTREPreneurs and gain some great exposure!
