In partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Growth, the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science, York Region, and the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs, YSBEC and all Small Business Enterprise Centres (SBECs) are dedicated to providing support to startup and small businesses during their initial years of development and operation.

It is through our extensive network of partnerships and a shared commitment to helping developing businesses thrive in Ontario that we have been able to guide and assist hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners across York Region.

Entrepreneurs are provided with easy access to business consulting services and information covering management, marketing and sales, technology, and finance.
