A new web-based tool for business pre-start-up in the Gaspé peninsula and the Magdalen Islands

7 February 2017

The Baie-des-Chaleurs, Rocher Percé, Gaspé, Haute-Gaspésie, and Îles-de-la-Madeleine SADCs (Société d’aide au développement de la collectivité) are proud to unveil today a new website dedicated to the pre-start-up of a business: The Road to Entrepreneurship.

This website lists all of the available resources that are useful in the pre-start-up of a business in the region. In addition to increasing awareness of support services, The Road to Entrepreneurship is a guide to the steps, tricks and essential tips for promoters who want to embark on an entrepreneurial adventure.

With a search tool that can be customized according to the type of business, territory, steps and even the category of resources, users have access to databases, resources and useful tools to develop their business project with just a few clicks.

Originally developed by the Papineau SADC, The Road to Entrepreneurship was adapted for the region. In addition to the web-based tool, a printed map showing each one of the steps will be available in both official languages.

An easy-to-use web-based tool

With this site, the SADCs aim to facilitate and especially demystify the business pre-start-up process. Following each one of the steps will help structure a project and ensure that all aspects have been taken into consideration. In addition, promoters have access at all times to reliable, up-to-date information allowing them to proceed autonomously in their efforts. If needed, the resources listed for their region are available to support them.

This new initiative is available to all potential Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine entrepreneurs at www.routedelentrepreneur.com.
