The Mississauga Business Enterprise Centre (MBEC) works with many existing and up-and-coming entrepreneurs. MBEC recently re-connected with a local business and we were pleased to learn that not only has this entrepreneur expanded his operations; he has shared his experience and prosperity, touching the lives of the youth in the community.
Peter Tolias is a young entrepreneur who owns Tolias Landscaping & Plowing and has what it takes to strive to succeed in business, and he has done just that. In operation since 2000, his company provides snow plowing and landscaping service to clients in Mississauga and the surrounding GTA area, and has grown to over 90 employees. Like many successful entrepreneurs, Peter is grateful for his achievements and is compelled to give back. Passionate about youth in the community, he has contributed to several charitable organizations and is an active motivational speaker at several youth empowerment engagements. One such event hosted by Mr. Tolias was, “I CAN, WE CAN” held at the Hershey Centre to bring together celebrities and community partners who created a positive, energetic environment to encourage and celebrate youth.
Mr. Tolias is one example of the many entrepreneurs who started as a small business owner who understood the value in providing quality work to maintain a reputable company and recognizes the benefit of giving back.
MBEC offers continued support for businesses looking for guidance to expand. We provide in person business consultations and business plan reviews. For business owners who want to broaden their business knowledge from the comfort of their home or without leaving their office, we offer online business courses designed by industry professionals, such as Strategic Management, Social Media, and Finance.
