Enterprise Elgin Business Plan Competition



Our team is working on offering a new event, open to St. Thomas and all of Elgin County. Stay tuned for what we come up with next!

Over the past four years, the Elgin Business Resource Centre partnered with Elgin County Economic Development to host Enterprise Elgin Business Development Plan Competition.  Start-ups and expanding businesses in Elgin County were encouraged to submit their business plans for a chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind prizes generously donated by many local sponsors. From all submissions received, five finalists presented to a panel of judges in a “dragon’s den” style grand finale where a single winner was selected.

Past winners included:

2015   Sarah Foshay, Smart Dental Hygiene
2016   Ryan and Krista Harris, Century Chocolates
2017   Jane and Chuck Magri, Wildflowers Tea
2018   Doris and Gabriel Chordekar, Shebaz’s Shawarma
