June 8, 2022
After acceptance, elerGreen begins Racialized and Indigenous Supports for Entrepreneurs (R.A.I.S.E.) program jointly hosted by Digital Main Street (DMS) and Parkdale Centre of Innovation, aimed to support business with both training and funding.
R.A.I.S.E. is a program focused on assisting Indigenous, Black and other racialized entrepreneurs to start and scale their business. The program will provide coaching, mentorship, advisory services and grants to entrepreneurs looking to increase their capacity and scale their business.
R.A.I.S.E. program would bolster elerGreen’s available resources to catalyse elerGreen cleantech efforts, while elerGreen expects to reciprocate by contributing expertise and connections to the community. R.A.I.S.E. program is expected to be held in conjunction with other programs, including SHOPHere program by DMS to establish online store and the ongoing collaborative sales for elerGreen.
