MIGHTY is a partnership between the Industry-Education Council of Hamilton and the Innovation Factory. The award program followed 13 weeks where participants were taught the basics of starting their own business through a series of workshops.
Twenty students competed in MIGHTY Pitch and a chance to enter a program run by the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure and receive a $3,000 grant to operate a business. Last year, three of the recipients for the 100 grant allocations came from MIGHTY.
