    What is available for me for a start up loan/grant? I am a woman over 50 who has started up a business.

    I have been open since March 2012 and there is alot of service and product to offer which is not currently in place.

    This program interested me but I am not sure if it is closed?

      Hi Julie,
      There is the Women’s Entreprise Centre – they are based at Waterfront Station and in Kelowna. You can always call the lady who runs the program that you were reading about on our site – Vancity Community Foundation has a lot of resources for persons who are starting up a business. If you have a more specific question, I’d be happy to help, but if you are interested in that program, then it is best to contact the consultant herself and the contact is at the end of the article.

      Best wishes,
      Julie McMahon
