This is an exciting stage when you are full of energy and excitement and look forward to your entrepreneurial journey.

Having a great business idea that will make consumers want to buy from you is key! To help you, we’ve compiled and categorized several lists of business ideas to help you out.

Even if you already have an idea of what you want to do, it’s a good idea to see what the other options exist to get your creative juices flowing and solidfy your chosen path or modify your original idea.

We can help you decide what type of business is right for you:

Are you in the PLANNING stage?

Excellent! This is a fun business stage, which is also extremely essential, as this is when you are building the foundation for your business on which it can grow, diversify and thrive.

Your new business is your baby.. your personal project that you can sculpt and nurture in the way you want, and it can be very successful as long as consumers like what you have to offer.

Build a strong plan before spending any money on your business. Start with market research, including defining your target market (TM) and scoping out your potential competitors. Then, write down your long-term and short-term goals and needs, followed by the step-by-step actions you will take to reach your goals.

We can help with a custom Business Coaching program to take you from start-up to success in just 12 weeks, 


This is the part of business plan implementation you do before you open the virtual or physical doors of your business.

You may want to get sales training, a website and set-up on social media.

Are you in the Start-Up or Growth Stages?

You need to MEET PEOPLE, and lots of them on a regular basis. Become part of the “’s WHO you know,” circle by building strong business relationships and getting referrals starting with our Business Networking Events and Memberships.

  1. You are invited to our monthly Virtual Networking Events on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 12pm, and
  2. In-person business networking events, typically on the last Tuesday of the month in the evening in Toronto or Thornhill.
  3. Starting in October you can attend our monthly satellite business networking events in different areas of the GTA, hosted by our amazing Business Networking Event Regional Managers. So, if you can’t make it to Toronto, you can still be part of GTApreneurs.
  4. Take your networking to the next level with a Business NETWORKING EVENT Membership or
  5. An Exclusive Business Coaching and REFERRAL NETWORKING Membership (space is limited to one member per profession)
