Rise Generator Workshops


Anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, ADHD, self-injury, addiction, learning disability or similar challenges you’ve experienced don’t have to limit your options. When you design your own business, you design your own future.

Be inspired and learn the basics of how to design your own business in a fun and interactive one-day FREE workshop for TEENS.


Rise Generator is a one-day fun and interactive workshop where you will learn from successful entrepreneurs with a history of mental health challenges and get started on the basics of business design.

Entrepreneurs are the future of the Canadian economy and the younger you are when first exposed to entrepreneurship, the more likely you are to start a business down the road.

Young people are more likely to experience mental illness / substance abuse more than any other age group.  Entrepreneurship gives you the flexibility, control and opportunity to pursue your passion that you might not find in traditional employment.

So now is the perfect time to learn about starting a business and how it can work for you!

Get inspired; build a business using business design tools; and pitch for a chance to win a seat at the table at a special Generator LaUNCH with successful entrepreneurs, Rotman School of Management business faculty and experienced advisors to be held at the University of Toronto at a later date!
