Hear from past Blueprint: Backing Businesses participants on their experience

Like so many, the pandemic pushed us to focus on a digital online solution. We could no longer rely on revenue from in-person events. Thanks to the generous grant provided by the Blueprint program, we were able to hire talented student developers, and are now set to launch the first version of our new digital product this season."

Crystal Wong Kruger,
Founder of LIOHAN

The most valuable aspect of this program is access to mentors. Being able to speak to other founders who have had the same struggles has been a great source of encouragement, experience, and knowledge."


Salima Valji,
Founder & CEO
of Unleash Forward

Salima Valji

My main takeaway from the program was the ability to network within the startup community and see how we can best collaborate and help one another achieve our goals. The program was very impactful. The mentors and guidance we accessed provided us with many opportunities."

Tosin Ajibola,
Co-Founder & CEO
