Applications for the City of Mississauga’s Mississauga Business Enterprise Centre (MBEC) Summer Company Program ended in May but Ben Jacobs of Mississauga had his spot secured as the winner of the 2017 Young Entrepreneurs Make Your Pitch Competition. Ben Jacobs and his partner Geeth Varaday have created a mobile application that connects homeowners with students looking for work around the neighbourhood.
Entry into the Summer Company Program will allow Jacobs to continue his success with his mobile application. Summer Company has been committed to serving the younger generation, those between 15 and 29 years of age, to help them start and run their own summer businesses. There is hands-on coaching, mentoring from business leaders, as well as opportunities for funding.
Amongst the 23 participants in the program, Jacobs will join the high-intensity, knowledge-packed and fun-filled summer running his own business. Jacobs is the fourth student from Mississauga to win the Make Your Pitch Competition. The Grade 11 student can look forward to gaining a full experience of running his own business this summer!
