Kristel’s story

Alison Springate Guelph Smart City Office • 27 February 2019

During our workstream meetings, we receive input from and collaborate with organizations and individuals on how to meet our Smart Cities Goals. One of our workstream members, Kristel Manes, describes how involvement of Business Centre Guelph-Wellington in the Smart Cities proposal has influenced BC GW’s work with its clients :

“Business Centre GW works specifically with new entrepreneurs starting businesses. We help with free consultations, programming and training specific to what the entrepreneurs need to know. Since being involved with the workstream, we have tailored our training programs when working with our food based companies to start thinking and incorporating the circular economy into their business plans. We are working on their awareness, education and access to the proper resources that will help them succeed in the new generation of social enterprise … in the circular food economy.”

Thank you, Kristel!
