Futurpreneur Canada (formerly the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, or CYBF) has been fuelling the entrepreneurial passions of Canada’s young enterprise for nearly two decades. We are the only national, non-profit organization that provides financing, mentoring and support tools to aspiring business owners aged 18-39. We provide pre- and post- launch support for entrepreneurs aged 18-39 who are ready to start their business or who have been operating their business for under one year full time. The financing is a low-interest character-based loan up to $15,000 or $45,000 with a match from Business Development Bank of Canada. In addition to the loan, we match each Futurpreneur with a mentor for 2 years; our volunteer mentors are entrepreneurs and/or experts in a professional industry.
