OUT For Business Youth Entrepreneurship Cohort 2021 – Jordan Hipson, Founder, Over Sea Real Estate Management

February 10, 2021

The CGLCC Youth Entrepreneurship Program empowers LGBT+ entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 39 by providing them with support and tailored guidance to help them establish or grow their own businesses. The one-year program has four components:

  • networking
  • access to funding
  • building business skills
  • mentoring

Launched in 2017, the program helps a new group of young entrepreneurs each year. Each week, we will be spotlighting a member of our 2021 OUT For Business Cohort.

Thank you to our program partners: TD Bank Group, Scotiabank, Higgins & Burke Naturals, City of Toronto and Shopify.
