Hands-ON is a program aimed at enhancing the business skills of entrepreneurs.

A regular series of interactive workshops that support the growth ambitions of local entrepreneurs and start-ups, Hands-ON workshops are open to the public and exist to develop the skills needed by entrepreneurs to successfully start and grow their ventures. By facilitating interactive learning, this series is also designed to help the youth and student community explore entrepreneurship as a career option.
