Are you 18-39 and ready to launch a business?

With financing ranging from $5,000 to $60,000* and the support of an experienced mentor, you can launch the business your community has dreamed of, just like Marie-Pier did. At just 28, Marie-Pier is the owner of Aubergélit, the first youth hostel in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, 100 km east of Quebec City.

Two years ago, going through a phase of depression, Mare-Pier decided to move to the South Coast to rest. The inclusive nature of Saint-Jean- Port-Joli and its active community of artists played a major role in her recovery. It wasn’t long before she decided to start her own business here. From the outset, the young entrepreneur wanted to include as many people as possible in her project. So she asked local people for help and advice.

Her lifelong idea of starting her own youth hostel took shape after just 8 months, thanks to the help of the community who shared the same dream.

Find out how you can get the support you need to start your own business with Futurpreneur.

I realized my business plan the year I moved to Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, and I knew the company would work here. The place inspired me, the community inspired me. (…) Economically speaking, I’m trying to keep everything moving, and I make my homemade household products from raw materials that come from the region – it’s crazy!

Marie-Pier Patoine, Owner of Aubergélit
