Three local kids are looking forward to summer as they launch businesses in the Summer Company Program. The Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre offers the opportunity for hands-on business training, mentoring and up to $3,000 in this competitive program. Connor Laird is starting “Lawns by Laird” and he already has a strong vision on how to make his lawn maintenance business different:
Also in North Grenville, Halle Fraser is launching “Halle’s Technology Solutions” and Alexandra Blockley offers “Beat the Wheat (gluten-free) Treats.”
Blockley will sell her treats at both the Brockville and Kemptville Farmers’ Markets.
