Individuals who are interested in starting their own business may register for the WorkBC Maple Ridge Self-Employment Program. The program is 48 weeks and is delivered in three phases.
Phase One | Business Concept Development
Participants will begin to plan out the basic elements of their business concept including identifying product or service options, conducting preliminary market research, exploring financial projections, mapping out business operations and more.
Phase Two | Business Plan Development
Participants will prepare a comprehensive business plan using our detailed and proven planning process. Participants will receive one-to-one instruction, access online resources and work directly with their business consultant to complete their plan. Completed business plans will be used to guide the business launch, implementation and growth and can be used to help secure start-up funding, lines of credit, business leases and more. Participants receive individual consultation and feedback by Business Consultants and an expert panel.
Phase Three | Business Launch And Implementation
Participants will work directly with their business consultant to launch their new business. Business consultants will provide support, conduct site visits and financial and operational reviews over a 38-week period to ensure the launch and successful operation of the new business. Participants will also have access to online resources, industry mentors and program networking events.
