Combine 100 high school or post-secondary students with an interest in entrepreneurship, a handful of keen mentors, and 50 Nova Scotian communities. What have you got? Startup 100, a unique partnership between the Province of Nova Scotia, the Sobey School Business Development Centre, and Enactus Saint Mary’s. The program began February 20, and will continue for 100 days with a two-fold goal: foster more business in the province and help students make their entrepreneurial dreams come true. Using an innovative online training program, students also have access to $5,000 in interest free funding, and are able to network with mentors and other entrepreneurs.
