As an Entrepreneur…
Seeds for Dreams is a source of early stage financing without transfer of equity or debt obligations for small female-led Saskatchewan businesses. In addition, it exposes your business to potential investors, mentors and customers. Gain experience promoting your business and asking for investment in a comfortable, positive environment.
This is a quarterly event where three businesses are chosen to pitch. The Seeds for Dreams members then vote on the pitches and the company receiving the most votes receives a $100 from each member to use toward allowable business expenses.
Every step of the process offers business owners valuable feedback on their business and their attractiveness to investors. So regardless of the outcome, all applicants benefit. We ask the winning business to return to the event in six months, and then again in 1 year to share how the money impacted their business.
Share your business dreams and we’ll see if we can help you make them a reality!
