Start Your Own Business: Putting Your Ideas to Work

Are you interested in starting your own business? Rise can help. Join Zach Tryndale as he talks you through how to put your ideas to work.

This workshop is for people who are at an idea stage of starting a business. We will cover some of the factors and considerations, and introduce a tool called The Lean Canvas to help people organize and validate a business idea.

About Rise: Rise-Ottawa is partner of Rise Asset Development, a registered charity that provides low interest small business loans and business mentorship to individuals with a history of mental health or addiction challenges. Rise offers two programs to assist entrepreneurs to start or grow their business including the Small Business and Event Lending Programs.

About Zach: I caught the entrepreneurial bug when I opened my own brewery; it ultimately didn’t work but taught me some important lessons; since then between my wife and I we’ve started over a dozen more businesses, and this year there was a position available that allows me to help share what I’ve learned to others who are just starting out.
