Most business developed are small and are screened before incorporating and are nurtured with ACE programs. Please complete the “Business Form” if you can help.
Sponsor events at communities:
You can sponsor an event at a community of your choice once they are established. The idea is to have certain events in each community and make it popular over time to attract a lot of people to the community to help its economy and vibrancy. The events can range from flying kits, to fishing, sport tournament, to cultural events such as poetry siting, calligraphy competition, to science fair or as simples as pumpkin growing contest – the events will be suitable to what the community can offer. Alternatively, provide prizes or cash toward the sponsored events.
You can approach and solicit corporate sponsors that you have some relations with or are part of to help any aspect of our project from funding, to marketing or providing us with supplies.
