Students in Mrs. Scott’s class have been working alongside Mike Scott, a Business Development Consultant at The Business Enterprise Centre. Mike supports entrepreneurs and SMEs (small and mid-size enterprises) throughout the region with one-on-one consultation services, business development programs and frequent workshops. He facilitates entrepreneurship programs such as Starter Company Plus and Summer Company (for youth entrepreneurs). Mike is very well connected with our regional economic development and sustainability networks and continues to foster the Business Enterprise Centre’s strategic partnerships. Prior to joining The Business Enterprise Centre, he was the Coordinator for the Timmins Local Immigration Partnership helping to strengthen community capacity to successfully integrate newcomers. Mike helped Mrs. Scott's grade 7 class with their Dragon's Den projects by hosting a virtual meeting to teach them about business development and important aspects of a business pitch to reach their target audience.
