While the program is valued at $6,720, the fee for Entrepreneur’s Toolkit Workshops – Winter Intensive Program is $350. It is open to all entrepreneurs with a specific project or business.

A certificate will be given to all participants upon attendance of 80% of the program. Entrepreneur’s Toolkit Workshops – Winter Intensive Program is a non-credit educational program.

Clients of a Regional Innovation Centre?

The Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs (ONE) covers the program fee for its clients. Innovation Factory clients are automatically ONE clients since Innovation Factory is a member of ONE.
