On Tuesday, January 26, 2010 AXIS Career Services opened it's first Entrepreneurial Workshop to assist newcomers to Newfoundland & Labrador in setting up their own enterprises. This first workshop was entitled Securing Financial Capital. It aimed to inform our immigrant entrepreneurs about how to access start-up funds to get their business up and running. The speakers in attendance were:


Steve Butler

Metro Business Opportunities (MBO)


Stephen King & Jim Garland

Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC)


Both groups of speakers offered invaluable advice to our clients, informing them of the various programs and services offered by their respective funding agencies. Tips on the layout and importance of business plans were pointed out. A question and answer period also took place giving our entrepreneurs a chance to receive specific advice to issues they currently face as they aim to start their businesses.


This was just the first in a series of workshops that will be organised and facilitated by Ross Houlihan, Entrepreneurial Coordinator at AXIS Career Services over the coming months. Future workshops addressing topics such as Formulating A Business Plan & Idea and Marketing & Promoting your New Business are soon to be announced.
