Funding for your small business
To help kick-start or expand businesses across Nova Scotia, up to $3000 in funding is available to entrepreneurial NSCC students and recent alumni from underrepresented groups* through the Scotiabank Entrepreneur in the Making Program (EITM).
Since 2019, EITM has provided a total of $126,000 to eligible NSCC students and alumni.
EITM is available at all 14 NSCC campuses, thanks to the generous support of Scotiabank as well as private community donors who provide additional funding for Truro Campus's Entrepreneur in the Making program.
Recipients also receive mentorship and guidance from NSCC, Scotiabank and the local business community.
