Nine local entrepreneurs are preparing diligently to pitch and launch their businesses during Community Futures Sunshine Coast’s LEAP launch party at the Gibsons Public Market Thursday, Nov. 30.
This fun and interactive evening designed to introduce new businesses to friends, relatives, potential investors, and future customers has become a tradition on the Coast, and part of graduating LEAP (Local Entrepreneur Accelerator Program).
The accelerator program is an eight-week intensive, delivered in partnership with Simon Fraser University. Over the last four years LEAP has launched 24 new businesses on the Sunshine Coast.
Party tickets are $15, with proceeds reinvested during the evening to support the entrepreneurs. Doors open at 6pm with the program to follow at 6:30. Desserts are provided, along with a cash bar.
