STARTUP SAULT
 
*************************
Sault Ste. Marie is now an official Startup Canada Community with the launch of Startup Sault, joining 20 others Startup communities across Canada.
 
Startup Sault is a volunteer–led movement bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, mentors and small business service providers to create a supportive and knowledgeable environment where business startups can flourish in Sault Ste. Marie in a spirited entrepreneurial community.

Our community enterprise partners include the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre (SSMIC), Sault Ste. Marie Economic Development Corporation (SSMEDC), Community Development Corporation of Sault Ste. Marie (CDC), and Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce.
 
Startup Canada was created in 2012 with the goal of enhancing competitiveness and prosperity across Canada, by strengthening the entrepreneurship ecosystem and promoting a vibrant entrepreneurial culture. 

Startup Sault is proud to be a part of this growing network and movement.
 
“As an entrepreneur myself, I have always valued the advice of other successful entrepreneurs, and felt we could do a better job of connecting our small business community to share, learn and prosper.  When the opportunity arose to become a startup community under Startup Canada, I jumped at it”, said Nevin Buconjic, Community Lead, Startup Sault.
 
“We have a great team of entrepreneurs and volunteers who will be working to connect our entrepreneurial community through networking events, learning opportunities and other methods”, said Buconjic.
 
Startup Sault is holding its first event, “Startup Drinks,” on March 27 from 7 – 9 p.m. at The Pub at the Water Tower Inn. 

“Startup Drinks” is a casual, fun networking opportunity to meet and interact with other entrepreneurs.

The Startup Sault team will be on hand to answer questions and share information. 

We invite all local entrepreneurs, small business owners and anyone interested in becoming an entrepreneur to attend.
