The Let’s Start Up Program is now offered in English!

The Lise Watier Foundation is proud to announce that the first cohort of the Let’s Start Up program will be launched in January 2021 in Montreal in collaboration with the Women’s Y of Montreal.

The Let’s Start Up program will allow participants to follow the program in English. Therefore, they will be able to use the pedagogical materials and follow the guidance offered by the counsellors and the entrepreneurship experts in English.

The Lise Watier Foundation decided to launch the Let’s Start Up program in order to help a greater number of women living in precarious social or economic situations and to offer an inclusive program. By offering content and support and coaching services in English, the Lise Watier Foundation wants to increase the program’s accessibility to a new clientele. The registration period for this first English-speaking cohort has begun! For more information or to register, visit the Montreal YMCA website.

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

I am so grateful for the Lise Watier Foundation’s financial aid for studies. Thanks to this support, I have the tools I need to become professionally accomplished and to live again. I am proud of where I am today and I know that my children are too… and you can’t put a price on that.
