If you are in your early stages of creating your own business, RIC Centre’s Startup Bootcamp is designed for you.

Our bootcamp connects current entrepreneurs with professional service providers to help you learn the fundamentals of legal planning, IP strategy, financial planning and funding rudiments that will help you start your business like no one else. 

We are proud to offer our clients access to professional service providers during bi-monthly bootcamp workshops to help provide basics of starting a tech-based business. Our professional service providers will also offer a follow-on opportunity for RIC Centre’s entrepreneurs to meet one-on-one for a more detailed discussion.

We’ve forged strong partnerships with top tier organizations (such as Bereskin & Parr LLP, Pallett Valo LLP and BDO LLP) in the Peel Region. Professional representatives from these organizations meet with our clients to thoroughly understand their business and offer strategic advice that caters to every entrepreneur’s needs and requirements. Each representative is committed to fostering innovation, and working with entrepreneurs who want to achieve that goal.
