The focus of the SEB program is on business start-up and we require that the applicant has a solid business idea and is committed to starting-up upon completion of the Business Planning Workshop Series, and acceptance into SEB. Individuals must clearly demonstrate their "entrepreneurial frame of mind", have a viable business concept with a "reasonable chance of success" in the London/Middlesex region and be recommended for acceptance into this federally funded program by SEB personnel.

Designed to maximize your learning and networking opportunities, participants can choose either a discussion group or seminar of a pre-determined topic.

Discussion groups are limited to approximately 10 people, allowing for in-depth and quality discussions. Mentors have been recruited to share their knowledge and ensure a dynamic discussion.
