Childcare Support for Women Entrepreneurs
Through the Childcare Support Pilot for Women Entrepreneurs project and Datenight Babysitting, we are providing reliable, flexible and accessible childcare to help entrepreneurial moms grow their businesses over the next 14 months.
To be eligible for this program, you must run a business that is less than 5 years old, have children, have fewer than six people employed by your company, and be located in Ontario.
While we’d love to provide childcare support for every aspect of your business, there are some notable parameters around this program. You may utilize our grant-funded childcare for the following items:
- Investor meetings
- Networking events
- Accelerator interviews
- Marketing strategy sessions
- Attending business boot camps or workshops
- Pitch events
- Attending trade shows or conferences
- Sales meetings
- One-time business growth event
- Speaking at events
Are you interested in participating in the Childcare Support Pilot for Women Entrepreneurs? Awesome! Pre-Register on the Datenight Babysitting Website or download the HELM app for Iphone or Android. Use the code GROWMOMBIZ in the discount section of registration and please check your email as you will be asked to provide the following in order to complete registration:
- Your LinkedIn profile
- Social media business page(s)
- Your company website
- Evidence of the event or business engagement you wish to attend. Please note that for application approval, you need to know the event that you will be attending – if you do not have anything upcoming, please wait to apply until you do.
We will also ask three business-related questions during the initial application process. Upon acceptance, you will be eligible for 15 hours of childcare support. You can then complete your registration and interview and book a babysitter so that you can grow your business! Please note that you need to submit an application every time you have an event you want to attend. You can re-apply through the same link that you were emailed – you do not need to re-register.
