Project Welcome: Supporting newcomers with entrepreneurial spirits
Are you a newcomer with ideas to start your own business and looking for support? Check out Enactus Ryerson’s Project Welcome, part of international nonprofit working in 36 countries. Newcomers arrive to Canada with valuable skills in a broad range of fields but their education and skills are devalued here, says Project Welcome’s Samad Nasim, forcing them into lower-paid jobs that do not match their potential. Project Welcome provides business and financial knowledge and access to training and mentorship to help immigrants’ entrepreneurial dreams come true.
