Futurpreneur success stories

So many young entrepreneurs who are Indigenous can find it a bit daunting to approach an organization they don’t know much about, right? But, I tell them, Futurpreneur really made an effort. I felt my message and my business idea were very well-received. I got a lot of feedback, a lot of encouragement. I felt welcome.

Futurpreneur is very close to my heart, not just because it gave me the money I needed, but because it promotes entrepreneurship. They understand how important small business is to our society and how many people’s lives are touched by it.

Futurpreneur provides financial support, but the team cares about me beyond my startup. They invested and encouraged me to succeed, and for that I am very grateful.
