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.


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.
