Each summer the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre operates a program for students called Summer Company.
Summer Company is a unique program designed by the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment to engage, inspire and help young entrepreneurs prosper. By providing a chance to create their own small businesses, Summer Company allows students to take charge as their own boss, helping them to develop business skills early in life.
Summer Company 2013 officially launched for Cornwall, S.D. & G. and Akwesasne on Thursday, June 27th, 2013 with a showcase of young entrepreneurs starting their own businesses this summer. Over 70 people welcomed our 8 student entrepreneurs at the Best Western during our annual Summer Company Launch, in conjunction with the Team Cornwall AGM.
