Welcome to Head Start in Business!

The Northern Ontario Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative, (Head Start in Business) is a project that brings together 24 Community Futures Development Corporations across Northern Ontario to fulfill their mandate of introducing entrepreneurship to youth.

A Head Start in Business has been a driving force in entrepreneurship awareness and initiation for the past 15 years. Over 16000 youth have participated in our innovative and experiential programs making entrepreneurship more accessible and realistic as a viable career option.

We boast an exceptional lineup of workshops, activities, contests and events for youth aged 4 – 34, as well as incredible summer camps for entrepreneurial-minded youth aged 5-29. Our programs are offered in various communities throughout Northeastern and Northwestern Ontario.

When you tell adults you will take their kids, get them to develop a business idea, borrow money, start a business, allow them to keep the profits, all while they have fun, and all in five days, adults quickly ask how to sign kids up.”  Sponsors/Supporters
