OUT For Business LGBTQ2 Youth Entrepreneur Program - Call for Mentors

Do you have a passion for entrepreneurship? Are you looking to support young LGBTQ2 entrepreneurs as they start or grow their own business? Do you identify as LGBTQ2? If so, the Canadian Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) needs your help.
 
The CGLCC's “Out For Business Program” is an initiative specifically for LGBTQ2 youth interested in entrepreneurship. This year-long program enables LGBTQ2 young entrepreneurs (aged 18-39) to grow confidence and competence in building a successful business through knowledge transfer, increasing resiliency and social capital (connectedness), skill development, and strategic networking opportunities facilitated within a supportive LGBTQ community environment.
 
We are now accepting applications from LGBTQ2 entrepreneurs and business leaders interested in becoming a mentor for a young business owner. If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, please complete this form by March 31, 2020.
