About Us

HELPING INDUSTRIES GROW

We deliver ​cost-effective, ​high-impact articles ​addressing biggest pain points of Ontario businesses. This means helping entrepreneurs access resources to help them start and scale their companies – and stay in Ontario.

As a Crown Agency, Begin To Grind represents the growth of Ontario’s technology sector, champion innovation, nurture small businesses, support economic development throughout the province, and promote Ontario internationally as a preferred place to invest and do business.

INITIATIVE TO REBOOT ONTARIO ECONOMY

The new normal needs new things. In the wake of the new markets, Begin To Grind has applied a recovery and resiliency lens to all programs. We have added support for main street businesses and focused on building digital skills in under-represented groups to ensure diversity and inclusion of all Ontario residents​.
