IDEA Mississauga is the new innovation district for startups and scale-up businesses in that city. The virtual centre houses programs and resources company founders can access. The Scale Up Program is just one resource companies who are ready to grow and the curriculum culminates in a 3-minute pitch competition in front of potential investors. Four companies won the competition and I wrote success stories for each of them that are now being featured on IDEA’s blog and in their newsletters.

Arbre is a unique skincare brand about to launch its sunscreen made with natural minerals. I interviewed founders Kristina Knox and Stephanie Tien to tell their story. You can read it on the IDEA Mississauga blog.
