The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ has extended its deadline for entrepreneurs to apply to set up shop downtown.
The Launch It! Retail Incubator & Pop-up initiative helps bring more shoppers and their business downtown by giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to occupy a rent-free storefront space.
Aside from the foot traffic, the pop-up also allows for business connections to be made and the development of networking with other entrepreneurs.
The deadline to apply is January 19, 2015. Application forms can be downloaded on the Downtown BIZ website.
Successful applicants will be required to take part in various business development workshops and seminars, provided through the BIZ and its partners.
