Let’s face it, it’s not easy to take an idea and turn it into a reality. Being an entrepreneur is hard because it’s all on you! Success is on you. Results are on you. Making the call is on you. 

 The truth is that being an entrepreneur will test you in ways you didn’t think possible, but we want you to pursue it anyway. We also want you to know that you’re not alone. There are a ton of support services and funding opportunities available to entrepreneurs in the Okanagan who are ready to take the plunge.
