Boomers who want to launch their own business (FREE Program!)

The Seniorpreneur Program 4 Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship (SPICE) is Community Innovation Lab’s (iLab) entrepreneurial pilot program for boomers in Durham Region. It is designed for people aged 55+ who want to explore entrepreneurship as a next career option or as a way of turning time and energy into a business.

Do you want to explore a great business idea, transform a passion into a business or explore entrepreneurship through purchasing an existing business? If you have initiative, experience and wisdom but need the entrepreneurial tools and skills to expand it into a business, SPICE is the program for you. SPICE supports future and existing entrepreneurs in Durham Region by providing entrepreneurial training in a Boot Camp workshop format, one-on-one coaching, group and peer mentorship plus an opportunity to pitch for start-up dollars at our Grand Finale Pitch Competition.

In the four action-packed days of Boot Camp, we will cover: • Introduction to Entrepreneurship • Business Planning • Business Operations • Business Launch • And so much more!

Underlining all of this will be addressing the unique challenges of the 55+ demographic.

Twenty (20) spots per boot camp are subsidized for Durham Region residents aged 55+ thanks to funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Space is limited for each boot camp, so contact us if you have any questions about eligibility! The next Boot Camp begins April 2, 2019. iLab is a charitable organization based in Durham Region. We address the social and economic gaps in communities through innovation and entrepreneurship. Our mission is to inspire, catalyze and advance a community of entrepreneurs. We are an incubator for enterprising ideas and an accelerator for promising ventures.
