BCF relaunches the  BCF Let’s Start Up Entrepreneurship Grant 2023

For a second year in a row, BCF is funding the 2023 Let’s Start Up Entrepreneurship Grant. This $5,000 grant will be awarded to a woman in the Let’s Start Up program who has chosen the Entrepreneurship Path to help grow her business. 

Applications will be evaluated by a selection committee composed of members of the BCF team and the Lise Watier Foundation. They will award the grant to a participant or graduate who stands out for the strength of her business plan. 

We will have the honour of revealing the identity of the recipient during our benefit event which will take place next April.

Thank you to BCF for the wholehearted support to the women of the Let’s Start Up program, which helps them  propel their business and embark on a sustainable path toward financial independence.

Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
