About the Program

Based in Business is a component of The Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur, which is an exclusive program for recently retired and transitioning Canadian Forces members interested in entrepreneurship.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend Based in Business (www.basedinbusiness.ca), a free of charge, week-long entrepreneurial boot camp held at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s. During the day, participants attend a series of lectures and workshops on a variety of business topics including marketing, accounting and human resources. In the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to work one-on-one with SIFE Memorial student volunteers to develop a viable business plan that will help you turn your entrepreneurial dreams into reality.

This year’s program runs from July 21 – 27, 2013

Following the boot camp, participants will be matched with a local CYBF mentor whose expert advice will help to guide you through the challenges of starting and running your own business.
