RIC Centre’s Startup Boot Camp is an intensive program that connects early stage entrepreneurs with professional service providers to teach foundational legal, IP and financial basics that will provide a strong start to their business.

We are proud to offer our clients access to professional service providers during bi-monthly bootcamp workshops to help provide basics of starting a tech-based business. Our professional service providers will also offer a follow-on opportunity for RIC Centre’s entrepreneurs to meet one-on-one for a more detailed discussion.

We’ve forged strong partnerships with top tier organizations (such as Bereskin & Parr LLP, Pallett Valo LLP and BDO LLP) in Peel Region committed to helping entrepreneurs and fostering innovation. Professional representatives from these organizations meet with our clients to understand their business and offer strategic advice catered to each client’s business needs and requirements.

If you’re interested in getting a head start for your new startup, come out to RIC Centre’s Startup Boot Camp!
