Futurpreneur Canada

Community Program

What is Futurpreneur Canada?

If you are ready to launch or buy a business, Futurpreneur Canada may be able to assist!  Futurpreneur Canada is the only national non-profit that supports young entrepreneurs (those between 18-39 years old) with financing, mentorship and free business resources.  In partnership with the BDC, they can provide financing up to $60,000 towards the start-up (or purchase) of a business for eligible applicants.


Fueling youth enterprise since 1996, Futurpreneur Canada has now supported over 12,000 young entrepreneurs and helped facilitate the creation of over 10,000 businesses.  Over the past 6 years, Futurpreneur Canada helped support over 100 youth-based businesses in Newfoundland and Labrador. 


Outside of their start-up loan program, Futurpreneur Canada also can support Side Hustle (part-time) businesses, social enterprise/non-profits and a program for those new to Canada (Newcomer Program).
