A new initiative is in the works to support entrepreneurs in the Comox Valley.

Hans Peter Meyer with We Are YQQ says the Comox Valley has been approved to become an affiliate with Startup Canada.

Meyer says Startup Canada fosters entrepreneurial communities across the country and help out small, new and local entrepreneurs launch their product and start their business.

The details of what the Comox Valley program will look like is still being developed.

A workshop is coming up on April 20th to discuss what it might look like for the Comox Valley.
