Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre, 30 years Supporting Small Businesses logo

For many, October signals a time of renewal. As the leaves turn golden and a chill lingers in the air, many find themselves busy preparing for the season to come. It’s a time when the new year ahead begins to creep up in our minds. 

During the month of October, thousands of Canadian small business owners take advantage of local events and come together to celebrate, learn, and network.This year, Small Business Month is an extra special time for the WindsorEssex Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre as we prepare to celebrate 30 years of supporting the local small business community. 

Since 1992, the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre has provided numerous entrepreneurs with the resources, training and support that is necessary to grow and succeed.  

We understand that small businesses are an integral part of any healthy community. We are invested in your success to make Windsor and Essex a wonderful place that we can call home. 

In the past 30 years, we have seen many diverse people pass through our doors. They have all contributed to the unique fabric of our community.  

Here’s what a couple of our most recent clients had to say: 

“The Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre and the ecosystem has been invaluable to us as we have grown into the company we are today. Having this support gives businesses like ours the confidence that we can emerge as a growing, profitable company that drives economic growth and now employs eight people.” -Darcy Haggith, Gruppo Nutrition. 

“Luckily, I signed up with the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre where it was amazing. The one-week course (Starter Company PLUS) we did with Andrew (Patricio) was fantastic; I learned so much from him. And I have a mentor who I talk to on a daily basis.” -Zule Ankamah, Zuleeats. 

The WindsorEssex Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre is proud to be a part of the community. Congratulations to clients past and present and to all entrepreneurs as we celebrate Small Business Month. Also, happy 30th anniversary to us. Here’s to 30 more!
